Lacquering aluminum can be particularly important in some specific situations or for certain application areas. Aluminum is usually coated to improve its properties or aesthetics. In fact, lacquered aluminum is used in the food market to make trays more resistant to corrosion, in case of contact with extremely acidic or salty foods, and more appealing to the consumer. The coating is also used in the beverage sector to give aluminum closures several properties including resistance to sterilization.
Lacquering Aluminium: How to do it
The final application of the aluminium product is all you need to know to decide how to paint it. This will allow you to choose the most suitable surface treatment. For example, hydrophilic, nanotechnology or antimicrobial lacquers could be suitable for the air conditioning and ventilation sector. The first two coatings have the objective of increasing resistance to corrosion and limiting the formation of condensation; while the latter blocks the proliferation of bacteria, molds and fungi, helping to preserve the life of the final product.
