Ideal Aluminum Products uses extrusions made from 75% recycled (secondary) 6XXX series of aluminum alloys. This material is received and recycled from local suppliers. The remaining 25% of our production is from primary billet, which typically contains 3-5% recycled aluminum. All of their suppliers end aluminum products are 100% recyclable with no downgrading of the material qualities. Over 30% of the aluminum produced worldwide now come from secondary sources (recycled material). The re-melting of aluminum requires little energy as well; only about 5 percent of the energy required to produce the primary metal initially is needed in the recycling process. Ideal Aluminum Products aluminum is 6XXX alloy that is produced from secondary billet extruded in their Oldsmar Florida facility and shipped via truck.
