Slabs are produced according to Wagstaff LHC Technology (Low Head Composite Casting Process) by avertical, semi-continuous casting on modern equipment with efficient devices for the liquid metal purification. They are intended for hot-rolling to produce plates, sheets, strips and foil. Slabs are made from aluminum alloys of the 1xxx, 3xxx, 4xxx, 5xxx i 8xxx series, whose chemical composition is prescribed by the international norms and/or customer requirements. When making an order, it is necessary to specify the slab dimensions according to our table, as well as cutting length and type of aluminum alloy by referring to some of the valid standards. Casting weight depends on the ordered slab length. Slabs are delivered in unpacked and in various lengths.
