Products - Billets

Billets

Billets make up 46 per cent of EGA’s total production. Produced using Airslip technology, all billets are homogenized and 100 per cent ultrasound-inspected before delivery. Inherently superior in quality and intrinsic purity, a large proportion of the annual production is cast in high extrudability 6063 alloy. EGA’s products are supplied for construction (windows and door frames), transportation, engineering, consumer durables, automotive, forging, as well as many other applications. Several famous landmarks incorporate EGA’s aluminium products, such as Malaysia’s Petronas Towers, and Dubai’s Burj Al Arab and Grand Hyatt Hotels.

EGA’s extrusion billets have been declared suitable for sustainable building practices, as per the criteria defined by the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen (DGNB, the German Sustainable Building Council).
