Coated aluminium is commonly used in modern construction that cannot be made from wood, plastic or steel. The metal is extremely popular for finishing roofs and domes and for use in wall panels, as well as for decorative purposes. In addition, the use of aluminum presents great potential for increasing the sustainable use of energy: during the recycling process it uses just 95% less energy. This is very important for the new concept of Green Building.
Why coated aluminium?
Aluminium has a lot of advantages that make it ideal in construction. It can be used in severe climatic conditions: that is why it is widely used in building in cold areas. It’s a very light material: thanks to its low specific weight, aluminium plates constitutes half the weight of steel with the same stiffness. In addition, coating makes aluminium more resistant to corrosion and lacquered aluminium foils have a greater aesthetic impact than bare material.
Lacquered aluminium manufacturers
Italcoat is one of the most important European manufacturers of coated aluminium. It supplies lacquered foils with different type of coating: hydrophilic, hygroscopic, antimicrobial and nanotech-based lacquer.
