aluminium sail track

Does anyone out know of a source for extruded aluminium sail track. All I can find is stainless steel track. Any help would be appreciated.

is this what you mean:

or are you referring to the Genoa or main track which secures to the deck (most of which is aluminium e.g. Barton track)

If you're looking at a mainsail track for the mast, you might want to look into this. I bought this with my new sail, and it works great.
