Material classification facilitates all aluminium business

The aim of “Material Classification” is to facilitate cooperation between our buyers and suppliers of aluminium raw material.

“Material Classification” in combination with “Purchase Conditions Raw Materials” work as simplified manuals and reciprocal regulations in all business with aluminium.

“Material Classification” and “Purchase Conditions Raw Materials” are from 2009 and replace all older 'scrap books'. The classification rules and raw material specifications are largely based on the European standards for aluminum scrap (A1 3920).
