Products Overview

We offer proficiency and efficiency, high-volume capacity down to niche focus in our product segments, with differentiating technology within recycling-based products and continuous casting processes. At ALCOM, we tailor our products to meet customer requirements, from specific alloys to specific coatings, and even specific looks.

Aluminium is a lightweight, strong, and flexible metal. Due to its unique properties including durability, impermeability, high thermal and electric conductivity, resistance to corrosion and 100% recyclability, aluminium is found in an enormous amount of products. In terms of consumption growth, aluminium has long outpaced steel, copper, and zinc. With our advanced technology and manufacturing leadership, we transform aluminium into a material advantage for our customers in key markets throughout the world.

Aluminium is part of global efforts to increase environmental safety and mitigate the climate change risks. The production of aluminium is one of the most environmentally friendly processes across the metals and mining industry. Aluminium can be endlessly recycled while keeping its distinctive properties. Additionally, it is used to produce energy efficient transport and construct eco-friendly buildings.

Our Facilities

ALCOM Sheet & Foil

We at ALCOM are equipped with capability to produce 36000mt per annum of hot band production output from three state of art continuous casting. Our rolling facilities comprises of 4-high cold mill and 4-high foil finishing mill. We have 6 sheet annealers and 10 single annealers.

ALCOM Nikkei Specialty Coating

Alcom Nikkei Specialty Coatings Sdn Bhd (ANSC) is ALCOM’s wholly owned subsidiary which was incorporated in 1991 as the first plant outside of Japan to produce pre-coated finstock with Japanese technology supported by Nippon Light Metal Co. Ltd. (NLM) of Japan. It possesses state of the art coating fin technology and is today a major supplier of coated fin stock to many of the Japanese transplants in this region.

Physically, chemically and mechanically ALUMINIUM is a metal like steel, brass, copper, zinc, lead or titanium. It can be melted, cast, formed and machined much like these metals and it conducts electric current. In fact often the same equipment and fabrication methods are used as for steel.
LIGHTWEIGHT

Aluminium is a very light metal with a specific weight of 2.7 g/cm3, about a third that of steel. For example, the use of aluminium in vehicles reduces dead-weight and energy consumption while increasing load capacity. Its strength can be adapted to the application required by modifying the composition of its alloys.

CORROSION RESISTANCE

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.

ELECTRICAL AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY

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.

REFLECTIVITY

Aluminium is a good reflector of visible light as well as heat, and that together with its low weight, makes it an ideal material for reflectors in, for example, light fittings or rescue blankets.

DUCTILITY

Aluminium is ductile and has a low melting point and density. In a molten condition it can be processed in a number of ways. Its ductility allows products of aluminium to be basically formed close to the end of the product’s design.

IMPERMEABLE AND ODOURLESS

Aluminium foil is completely impermeable and lets neither light aroma nor taste substances out. Moreover, the metal itself is non-toxic and releases no aroma or taste substances which makes it ideal for packaging sensitive products such as food or pharmaceuticals.

Aluminium is also infinitely recyclable with no downgrading of its qualities. The re-melting of aluminium requires little energy; only about 5 percent of the energy required to produce the primary metal initially needed in the recycling process.
