The best product, made the right way
We produce aluminium for many industries, including aerospace, automotive, defense, demolition and electrical. We have the capability to create custom alloys to serve any customer’s needs, and we pride ourselves on quality management procedures that ensure our customers receive the highest quality alloys, without fail.
We believe our manufacturing process should be as exceptional as the products we make so our process (unlike many other aluminum manufacturers) is FLUX-FREE, CHEMICAL-FREE, and CHLORINE-FREE.
Aluminum is infinitely recyclable without degradation to the material so it is unnecessary to add fluxes, chlorine, or any other hazardous chemicals to the process. In that spirit, we consider ourselves to be the "organic" producers of aluminum.
CASS is the only manufacturer of aluminum made from 100% end of life recyclables in California that does not use CHLORINE.
Chlorine is a highly toxic & corrosive gas yet, many secondary aluminum producers use chlorine gas or chlorine containing fluxes. Chlorine in toxic concentrations is known to have a kill radius of 2 miles and that is a risk CASS will never take!
To reduce costs, an increasing number of secondary aluminum producers choose nitrogen in their degassing process. However, in order to guarantee the yield a superior product made in the safest, most environmentally friendly way, CASS uses argon - a colorless, odorless, tasteless and non-toxic noble gas that can provide an inert & clean environment free of problematic elements.
We don’t use fluxes in the removal of magnesium and the purification of molten aluminum from oxides and hydrogen. Instead we blend down the magnesium using higher purity material. This practice requires us to be more diligent but results in a secondary marketable product that is chloride-free.
Aluminum’s infinite recyclability is an essential component of its sustainability footprint and that gives us the unique ability to close the loop here at CASS.
We’re proud of how we operate, which is why we’re LME and ISO certified. We’re also ISRI members, and proud to participate in the development and growth of the recycling industry
ISO 9001 is a standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system. It helps CASS to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps CASS improve our environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
