Description

This dataset is part of the GaBi 2020 database.

This process represents the cradle-to-gate production of an aluminum storefront system from YKK AP America's facility in Dublin, Georgia

Technology

The main material input into the YKK AP manufacturing process is aluminum ingot. The ingot is first alloyed to the desired

grade and cast into billets. Subsequently, the billets are extruded into profiles using steel dies that are manufactured

on-site. The extruded profiles may then be anodized or painted. Optional thermal treatment, whereby a system is thermally broken, leads into the product’s fabrication and assembly. In a last step, the complete assemblies are

packed for shipment.
