Italcoat produces coated aluminium with hygroscopic lacquer, ideal for the manufacture of energy recovery rotors. Hygroscopic lacquer makes products more resistant to corrosion caused by humid environment, e.g. in marine environment. In addition it limits the bacteria formation and it’s free of Silica Gel, source of bad smell.
Aluminium is chemically degreased and lacquered both sides with innovative hygroscopic formulation and anticorrosion primer developed by our R&D department. Hygrosieve® coating offers a lot of advantages: no risk of coating pulverisation, selective adsorption of water moisture with the exclusion of pollutants, chance to add biocide additive to the formulation, reduction of the flow rates of refrigerant fluid.
Thanks to the Molecular Sieve effect, the hygroscopic lacquer (Hygrosieve®) improves the performance in terms of selective vapour adsorption /desorption with a 15% of energy savings.
The coated aluminium with hygroscopic lacquer, absorbs moisture from the air. The hygroscopic lacquer reduces ventilation system’s energy consumption.
Typical Alloy: 3003
Temper: H18 – H19
