Esal Rod Alloys, SA (ESALROD) is an entity part of the ALEASTUR GROUP and we are dedicated to the production of specialty aluminum alloys in rod format.
Our company is promoted by Asturiana de Aleaciones, SA (parent company of the group) and the industrial partner in the JV project, the German Drahtwerk Elisental W. Erdmann GmbH & Co.
Our alloys are intended for multiple ending applications with diverse uses in the mechanical, electrical and welding segments. During the post-process of cold forming (wire drawing) performed by our customers, our rod is subject to a gradual diameter reduction at the time of acquiring better physical and mechanical characteristics. As a result of that cold forming process, our aluminum alloys are then suitable to facilitate ending uses and possibilities in the automotive, aerospace and food industries, among others.
Our Properzi CCR - Continuous Casting & Rolling technology give us the chance to produce our alloys in different rod diameters (from 9.5 to 30 mm). That versatility, in combination with the wide portfolio of aluminium alloys offered, delivers to ESALROD unique technical and commercial capabilities in respect of the main competitors in the market.
It is such a genuine characteristic that ESALROD is currently the only production unit in the world capable of manufacturing certain alloys of the 2x (Al-Cu) and 7x (Al-Zn) series rod format using the CCR technology.
