And according to the alloy, aluminium profiles are categoried as follows:

Aluminium alloy 1024, 2011, 6063, 6061, 6082, 7075 and other alloy grades, of which 6xxx are the most commonly used one. Different grades differ in the composition of various metals. And in Xmetals we use 6xxx and 7xxx the most for industrial profiles,automotive profiles and led profiles etc. Most of the profiles are in accordance with the actual customer drawings processing.


And according to the surface treatment requirements, we classify the following:

1. Linished or sandblasted

2. Anodizing

3. electrophoretic coating 

4. Powder Coating
