Four key materials


Several strong properties

Trangia’s windshield and pots are made from a high quality aluminium alloy – perfect for a simple, functional and long-lasting outdoor stove. In our product range we also have a number of treatments and coatings that enhance the properties of the original Trangia stove.

Trangia series 25 and 27 can be purchased with various materials used for the windshield, pots and frypan. Pots can also be bought individually in different materials, for those who want to specifically choose the combination of materials for their Trangia stove.

Ultralight UL

Ultralight aluminium a lightweight material with excellent heat conducting ability. The Ultralight (UL) alloy, also called 5005, is 50% stronger than “regular” aluminium (alloy 1050). This means that the pots can be made thinner, which makes your stove lighter without losing any durability or functionality. UL suits many users who want a simple, functional and long-lasting stove.

Hardanodized (HA)

Hardanodized aluminium has a surface treatment that makes the aluminium hard and scratch resistant. It has a matt grey finish. The treatment protects against wear and corrosion, and makes HA aluminium somewhat easier to clean than Ultralight. The weight is the same as equivalent products in UL, as the HA treatment is absorbed into the material. It is suitable for users who have previously appreciated our titanium pots, as HA products are just as light and durable.

Nonstick (NS)

Is primarily used on our frypans, but it is also available in saucepans. Non-stick pots and pans are made from Ultralight and have a coating that food does not stick to – even when using only a little or no oil or butter. This also means that they are very easy to clean. It is, however, less durable and we recommend only using wooden or plastic utensils with these pots and pans. Trangia’s non-stick coating is a PTFE that is free from PFOA.

Duossal 2.0™ (DS)

Duossal 2.0™, unique to Trangia, is made from aluminium and stainless steel that have been laminated together under extreme pressure. An optimal combination where the aluminium outer layer has excellent heat conducting abilities while the inner layer in stainless steel makes the pot durable and easy to clean. The material is 0.8 mm thick, of which 0.3 mm is stainless steel; these are robust pots for real cooking in the outdoors.
