Its differentiating characteristic among metal fixings is its corrosion resistance in certain environments and reduced weight.
It is an alloy of aluminum with other metals that provides with specific characteristics for each type of use.
Compared with galvanized steel, it is:
- Less resistance to impacts.
- Lighter. Some three times lighter than steel, which facilitates its handling.
- More resistant to environmental corrosion because of its ability to cover itself with an oxide layer that protects the aluminum below.
- Completely recyclable.
Cover rigidity is significantly increased by the folding of both edges, which is an exclusive CAPOTEX system that gives this material special significance.
