About NOVELIS
 
Manufacturing Capabilities

From recycling to remelting, from casting to rolling, from finishing to customer distribution – aluminum manufacturing is a complex and precision-driven process. Take a look at the science and technology behind Novelis’ success.

Novelis Fusion™

Novelis Fusion™ is an innovation by Novelis that enables the production of aluminum sheet products composed of multiple alloy layers, with an absolutely clean and oxide-free interface between the layers. We are the first company in the world to achieve commercial production of multi-alloy aluminum casting.

Customers increasingly need high-quality alloys that can combine the unique properties of aluminum in applications that require strength, lightweight characteristics and formability.

Our researchers have developed a range of core and clad alloy combinations designed to customer-specific characteristics for high-end markets, including:

  • Down-gauging
  • Lightweighting
  • High strength
  • Durability
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Formability
  • Brazeability
  • Damage-resistant surfaces
  • Variety of surface textures
  • 100 percent recyclability

 

How Novelis Fusion™ Works

This technology process allows aluminum alloys to be combined, providing a single aluminum sheet with multiple attributes.

A core and one or two outer layers of Novelis aluminum are cast simultaneously into one ingot. Once the ingot has solidified, it is rolled into sheet. The process produces a perfect metallurgical bond between the alloy layers at the molten metal stage. Alloy combinations are selected specifically to provide the properties needed—for example, to achieve high strength, excellent flexibility and corrosion resistance at the same time.

 
 
Recycling

Novelis recycles 40 billion beverage cans annually. That is enough cans to circle the globe more than 100 times, providing an important source of metal for the company and helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

 
Markets We Serve

From cars to buildings to smart phones, aluminum is a key component of more products than you might realize. We are the only company capable of producing high-end rolled products in North America, South America, Asia and Europe.

 
Electronics

Aluminum is becoming the product of choice in consumer electronics. Properties including light weight and superior ability to dissipate heat make it aluminum an attractive option for flat screen TVs, laptops smart phones and other electronics applications.
