R&D and Engineering

Center of Excellence


Kaiser Aluminum’s engineers, metallurgists, along with our sales personnel, work collaboratively with customers to develop innovative products and alloys for a myriad of applications. Our engineering experts in our “Center of Excellence” located at our Trentwood and Newark facilities use process development equipment for casting, extrusion, forging and rolling to address the most taxing design and manufacturing challenges.

All these processes are supported by analytical tools such as scanning electron microscopy and advanced CAD/CAM systems. Alloy development is another research area where Kaiser Aluminum is expanding the possibilities, whether the objective is in making more corrosion resistant products or increasing weldability and strength.
