ALUMINIUM POWDER COMPANY LTD

ALUMINIUM POWDER COMPANY LTD

The Aluminium Powder Company Limited (Alpoco) is among the world’s largest manufacturers of aluminium powders and granules and has unique facilities for the manufacture of aluminium alloy and other special alloy powders. The Company has established a leading position in the supply of superfine aluminium powders.
70% of Alpoco’s products are exported world-wide from its UK plants based in Anglesey, North Wales and Minworth near Birmingham.

Alpoco serves all the major aluminium powder markets including paste/pigment, chemicals, metallurgical, refractories, propulsion, pyrotechnics, spray deposition and powder metallurgy.

The Company has refined its powder atomisation technology over the past 40 years and prides itself on being able to supply customers with high quality products, on time at competitive prices. Products are supported by first class sales service and technical back-up. The Company maintains a Quality Management System conforming to ISO9001:2000.

Alpoco supplies the full range of commercial aluminium chemistries and particle sizes from Superpure (99.99%) to Secondary (97%) and from Superfine (5 micron D50) to Slivers (Needles - 8mm long). Atomisation in air or inert gas enables production of Irregular or Spherical powders depending on customer preferences. In Minworth, Centrifugal Spinning from a disk or a cup yields granules or needles of the desired sizes.

Alpoco has a 51% share in a Polish powder producer, Benda-Lutz Alpoco. This plant specialises in medium grades of air atomised powders. Alpoco can also supply a wide range prealloyed or blended powders to customer requirements.
