Aluminium naturally generates a protective oxide coating and is highly corrosion resistant. Different types of surface treatment such as anodising, painting or lacquering can further improve this property. It is particularly useful for applications where protection and conservation are required.
Aluminium is an excellent heat and electricity conductor and in relation to its weight is almost twice as good a conductor as copper. This has made aluminium the most commonly used material in major power transmission lines.
ALCOM’s fin stock is used by renowned international air-conditioner manufacturers around the world as a heat exchange mechanism in air conditioners and other heat exchanges applications.
ALCOM’s coated fins provide excellent hydrophilic and corrosion resistant properties to the fin. It is tailor-made it to meet our customer’s most stringent requirements.
