We are involved on an industrial activity with high technical complexity addressed to a segment from the first transformation level implemented to a later drawing step.
We are specialised in manufacturing special aluminium based alloys on wire rod format to be used in different mechanical, electrical and welding applications. The wire rods are produced on coils with a weight up to 2.5 t.

One of the differential characteristics of ESALROD consists in the ability to manufacture wire rod on different diameters, starting at 9.5 mm (0,375 inches) and up to 30.0 mm (1,181 inches).
This versatility of the Continuus Properzi rolling line enables ESALROD to supply the wire industry with thick diameters, in order to meet the early-bird applications on the market, such as machining larger pieces to be used in the automotive and aerospace industries.
Nowadays we are certified on the 4 following ISO standards (9001, 166002, 45001, COVID) and are as well in the certification process of the environmental ISO14001 that is expected to be finished before end of 2021.
Our wire rod is cold drawn in order to reduce the section step by step improving in that process the mechanical properties of the alloy.
The final applications our aluminium wire rod after drawing are very diverse, been applied on different sectors and customers worldwide. The automotive, aerospace, electronics and food industries, among many others, are some examples where the alloys come to life on their final uses.
