A myriad of benefits

Transport is the aluminium industry’s largest and fastest-growing market

Transport is the aluminium industry’s largest and fastest-growing market. As one of the world’s leading aluminium processors, we are committed to supporting the industry through the provision of top‑quality aluminium semi-finished products and solutions.

The benefits of using lightweight, strong and durable aluminium extrusions and sheets for transport applications are multifold:

  •  
    Weight savings for reduced emissions throughout the life of the vehicle
  •  
    Energy savings due to aluminum’s recyclability
  •  
    Excellent deformation characteristics and manufacturing properties
  •  
    Corrosion resistance

Constellium is an active player in the upgrading and modernization of bus systems worldwide. Our aluminium solutions for bus include extrusions, composite panels, accessories and rolled products.

  •  
    Rolled products: We design and supply all types and dimensions of aluminium sheets and plates. For structural sections, we provide wide and heavy gauge plates.
  •  
    Extrusions: We design and supply structural extrusions produced on presses with a capacity of up to 10,000 metric tons. Extrusion lengths of up to 30 m and widths of up to 750 mm cater to all the needs of bus construction companies.

    Composite panels

    Composites: Customized composite panels combine the benefits of low weight, excellent thermal and acoustic insulation and high rigidity. Typical applications are ceiling linings, side ceiling covers, floor panels and partition walls, all with foam or honeycomb cores. With excellent technical properties, numerous options for surface design, ease of handling and good workability, composite panels enable customers to develop complex, modular systems for every imaginable application.

Close collaboration with leading manufacturers
