Aluminium wire is manufactured in flat and profiled forms

Chaplin Wire manufactures both flat and round aluminium wire in the alloys as per the table below. Flat wires are mainly manufactured in AlMg5 alloy on order to provide the extra tensile strength that 5% magnesium gives.  An ultra clean aluminium wire known as AluUltra is a leading product for anchoring bristles into toothbrushes.


In March 2020, as a reaction to increasing demands due to the Covid-19 coronavirus Chaplin Bros started to produce Aluminium Nose Wire for the production of face masks. Chaplin Bros has been producing large quantities of high specification flat aluminium wire for other applications for many years and has a high capacity available to meet customer demands.
