Given our broad range of sourcing options from hi-quality, independent mills in Europe, Asia and USA, we can often assist with those niche or specialized products difficult to source.
One of our traditional markets has been the supply of plain and coated light gauge Aluminium Coil commonly referred to as Finstock. This product is supplied directly to manufacturers of Commercial Air conditioners and Heat Exchangers.
Whilst aluminium is traditionally used for this application due to its natural anti-corrosion & heat dissipation properties, in recent years, there has been a swing to use coated products for these applications. The coated product allows manufacturers/designers to reduce the weight and amount of aluminium used (i.e. reduce cost), and/or increase the performance of the unit due to increased fin area and/or increase the corrosion resistance for corrosive environments (i.e. salt, pollution etc.).
These Finstock coils have specialized epoxy or water based coatings providing Hydrophobic or Hydrophilic properties that permit thinner gauge aluminium to be used.
