We manufacture alloys to all international specifications and also to your unique own specifications.
Our production methods ensure that our metal is oxide and gas free.


We manufacture dry cast de-oxidant aluminium pellets. Dry cast pellets are superior in quality in comparison to wet cast pellets. They are also safer to re-melt having never come into contact with water in the manufacturing process. Pellets are packed and shipped in 1ton bulk bags.


We manufacture de-oxidant aluminium Nuggets. These nuggets are used in the steel production and purification process and are an average weight of 150g each. Nuggets are packed and shipped in 1ton bulk bags.

Sacrificial Anodes
We offer the marine industry a range of sacrificial anodes using only high-grade primary aluminium. These are commonly used for ship hull and ballast tank protection. Our short lead times helps ensure quick delivery to vessels in dry dock. Standard stock anodes include various shapes, rectangular, pear, square and doughnut. Weights range from 1 kg to 40kg.

We also supply custom made anodes to your specification and for any application. Examples of our product applications include under sea pipes, sea pylons and oil rigs. We have previously cast custom anodes from 20kg up to 150kg. Our services include design, mould construction and casting.
