Aubert & Duval missile parts and casing offering

Aubert & Duval supplies materials - steels, titanium, superalloy and aluminium - for missile components such as casings and partsFor every stressed component like missile parts or casings, Aubert & Duval offers the following products:

  • Tubes
  • Forged and closed-die forgings
  • Rolled sheets
  • Bars

Thanks to its outstanding industrial capabilities, Aubert & Duval can offer bars,  sheets, plates, and forgings for rocket and missile materials.Made from maraging or stainless steel grades, aluminum or titanium alloys, Aubert & Duval materials meet the most stringent requirements for critical missile components. Aubert & Duval products for parts or casings show resistance to corrosion, ductility at negative temperature, excellent weldability and mechanical properties, and extra low or high temperature resistance.

Aubert & Duval materials for missile parts and casings from maraging steels, aluminium or titanium alloys meet the most stringent industry requirements.
