Aluminum coating is one of the most requested surface treatments to improve the performance and aesthetic impact of the final product, in the case of exposed installation. The process is required in various fields including construction, hvac-r and automotive, with the aim of facilitating the use of this material in certain sectors. Based on the use of the semi-finished product, you can choose different lacquers for aluminum: hydrophobic, hydrophilic, nano-technological and so on. However, a gold aluminum coating with particular characteristics may be useful for some markets.
The gold epoxy lacquer by Italcoat
Italcoat produces a gold epoxy coating. The company supplies aluminium varnished with an epoxy based lacquer, specifically developed to guarantee high performance in very aggressive environments. Aluminum foil is chemically degreased and pre-treated, coated on both sides with a very thin layer of epoxy lacquer. According to the studies carried out by the R&D department of the Laminazione Sottile Group, of which Italcoat belongs, the aluminum coated with this lacquer has a high corrosion resistance up to 1000 hours of exposition to acetic salt spray fog following ASTM GBS norm. Gold epoxy is a great product for manufacturers of alu fins for heat exchangers.
