Hydal at workshop Metal Surf in Halmstad!

On Tuesday 14 September, Hydal participated in a workshop at Halmstad University. The workshop is part of the MetalSurf project.

Group work was on the agenda and with a mix of customers, profile manufacturers, surface finishers and processing companies in the aluminum profile industry, there were very rewarding discussions that will hopefully contribute to a consensus on aluminum surfaces.

MetalSurf is a project initiated by the industry organization Swedish Aluminum and funded by Vinnova in the program Metallic Materials. The project is led by Halmstad University and Jönköping University.

The project is ongoing during 2020-2022 and the purpose and goal is to find a common objective way of assessing aluminum surfaces. This is, and has always been, a scourge for the industry in all years as the ambiguities in existing systems mean large costs for complaints and lead time losses. Therefore, this is an important project, especially for profile manufacturers, surface finishers, processing companies and, by extension, all end customers.
