Dedicated to advancing the effective use of aluminum extrusion in North America

The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) is an international trade association dedicated to advancing the effective use of aluminum extrusion in North America. AEC is committed to bringing comprehensive information about extrusion's characteristics, applications, environmental benefits, design and technology to users, product designers, engineers and the academic community. Further, AEC is focused on enhancing the ability of its members to meet the emerging demands of the market through sharing knowledge and best practices.

EPD for Aluminum Extrusions

EPD for Aluminum Extrusions
AEC has released two EPDs covering aluminum extrusions produced in the U.S. and Canada - one for basic extrusion products and one for thermally improved products.

The EPDs are the most comprehensive assessment of extrusion's environmental footprint to date.

AEC Joins Lift

AEC Joins Lift
AEC has joined LIFT (Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow), a Detroit-based public/private partnership focused on advancing metals technology for transportation lightweighting.

LIFT funds technology programs, conducts workforce development, and operates a development, prototype and small-scale production facility. details


Aluminum Extrusion Use in Transportation
Automotive engineers are looking for ways to reduce vehicle weight for fuel savings and extrusions are helping to meet the challenges of reducing the carbon footprint of vehicles while offering vehicle developers a corrosion free material with the design flexibility to combine multiple functions in one part, and optimize the application of strength to where it is really needed.
