Billets are produced by the semi-continuous vertical casting using Wagstaff technology - AirSlip (Air Casting Process) with state-of-the-art equipment, with efficient devices for the liquid metal purification. They are intended for extruding in molding profiles, bars and tubes of the various shapes and applications. They can also be used for the production of electrical conductors. Maximum length of billets for the commercial delivery is 7 meters, in diameters as shown in the table. Alloys from which they are casted include extrusion alloys – of the 6xxx series, whose chemical composition is prescribed by the international standards. When making an order, it is necessary to specify the billet diameter, the cutting length, the alloy type and the chemical composition by referring to some of the valid standards. Billets are delivered in the homogenized state, on the wooden pallets, firmly tied up with the steel or plastic stripes, depending on customer requirements.
