The alloy was developed by the company’s inhouse Cindal R&D centre as a high quality and cost-effective alternative to the industry standard 5505. The new alloy offers clear cost and productivity advantages for solid, metal trim parts.

55AT™ has been developed by Aludium for exterior automotive trim applications which require the highest quality bright finish. These include window frames, roof rails, sunroof trim, roof racks, B- and C-pillar decoration, and other exterior decorative parts of premium vehicles.

Higher yield enhances cost-effectiveness

For exterior trim application, 55AT™ is cost-effective both in terms of its initial cost and yield. It has a level of cleanliness not found in any comparable alloy thanks to the advanced filtration system Aludium uses during casting. This guarantees consistently perfect anodising and brightening results. With 55AT™, there is no need for labour-intensive mechanical polishing and high productivity guaranteed.
