Why do we use aluminum?
Why did we choose it?
Anticorodal aluminum is an aluminum alloy alloyed with magnesium (0.4-1.7%), manganese (0.5-1%) and silicon (1-5%): its main advantages are good mechanical characteristics and excellent corrosion resistance.
How does anodization take place?
Anodizing is an electrochemical process by which a protective oxide layer forms on the surface of the treated metal and protects it from corrosion. In aluminum there is a real surface transformation: the bare metal reacts with the oxygen that develops during the electrodeposition process and forms aluminum oxide.
The advantage is a considerable about 7% reduction in the weight of the gun.
In addition, the new cap is interchangeable with the old one made of brass. Since 2001 we have already been successfully using a cap made of the same material on all our HT guns.
