Why Aluminum?

Lighter, stronger & more cost effective.

What more could you want in a reusable protective case or container solution? Today’s advanced metal-forming technology allows ultra-fast and affordable manufacturing of fully welded aluminum cases. From ultra high-end retail to critical military field applications, a fully-welded aluminum case is built to perform under extreme conditions, not just once, but over and over. A fully-fabricated aluminum protective case from ICC is reusable, reparable, highly customizable and at the end of service, completely recyclable. Unlike other shipping container materials, such as polymers and plastics, a custom aluminum design is not beholden to a previous mold or fixture; each design is truly unique.

Advantages of Welded Aluminum

Welded aluminum protective cases are very lightweight and offer real advantages over traditional plastic cases. ICC's sustainable aluminum cases are unaffected by extreme heat or cold conditions and regularly perform between -238°F to +302°F. Aluminum cases require no molds or special tooling, saving time and money.

Aluminum cases are very strong and resistant to impacts. Impacts may show on the exterior, but the energy from the impact is absorbed within the distortion and not transferred to the contents. When an impact occurs in other cases, the case will often flex or deform, transferring the energy directly to the contents. The case exterior returns to its original shape, but unbeknownst to all, the interior contents will arrive in the field damaged and potentially unusable.

Welded aluminum protective cases can be manufactured to any size and/or weight carry capacity. Aluminum is an excellent choice for large, complex industrial or military containers. Aluminum is also very light, a crucial requirement for all transport and shipping containers.

  • Complete design and engineering
  • Material certification and control
  • Certified welding inspectors


Aluminum is very strong and resistant to impacts. Impacts may show on the exterior but the energy from the impact is absorbed within the distortion and not transferred to the content. With polymer or plastic cases, when an impact occurs, the case will often flex or deform and transfer the majority of the impact energy directly to the contents. The polymer or plastic case then returns to its original shape, but the contents will often be left damaged, unbeknownst to all until the case and the damaged contents are in the field.
