THE “ETCH” OF THE FUTURE AVAILABLE NOW

90% REDUCTION OF METAL DISSOLUTION 90% REDUCTION OF CAUSTIC SODA CONSUMPTION 90% REDUCTION OF SLUDGE More and more the aluminium anodizing industry is required to reply to requirements coming from a multi-faceted combination of factors. The use of caustic soda for etching of profiles, while established since a very long time, is increasingly under pressure due to environmental and cost implications. The search for an alternative to caustic etch is therefore seen as a natural technological evolution. The research has brought to a new type of...

A NEW “SUPER-SEAL” RESISTANCE ALSO TO ALKALI (PASSES ALSO SEVERE AUTOMOTIVE TESTS)

  The latest development in terms of resistance to alkali aggression of the aluminium anodic oxide layer has been awaited since long by many industries, such as automotive, electronics, medical, aerospace. There are in fact several requests to provide the anodic oxide with a high resistance to alkalis in order to use anodized aluminium in fields in which the use of the same would not have been possible until today. The new requirements concern the resistance to alkaline environments of the anodic oxide, to be obtained with an ecological...

HEA (High Efficiency Anodizing)

Italtecno’s research laboratory has developed a new system for anodising which is able to improve:   efficiency (LOWER ENERGY COSTS) consistency (BETTER REPRODUCIBILITY, less reject) quality (HARDER AND BETTER CORROSION AND ABRASION RESISTANT ANODIC COATING) of the anodic layer.   ADVANTAGES OF THE HEA PROCESS Good quality of the anodic film and uniform colour tones achieved by a standardised, computer controlled process. Quick or high speed anodizing (e.g. 20 micron produced in 20 minutes) without problems of aspect on natural colour...

Superseal 2S – New Sealing Process: A Revolution In Anodizing

Superseal 2S – New Sealing Process: A Revolution In Anodizing

Some discoveries create the history of a science:30 years after the big invention of the “cold seal”, no other considerable research/improvement has changed the way of sealing ; now, after many years of R&D in the direction of a big step ahead in the sealing process Italtecno has developed a new know-how for a sealing process with very high performance against corrosion and also against alkali while all conventional seals fail the alkali tests.
Furthermore, resistance to alkali at a certain degree is also good for profiles and sheets for architectural application due to the frequent problem of contact with concrete during building construction and contact with alkaline cleaners during cleaning of buildings.
For “conventional” corrosion in acid it is possible to make a comparison with conventional technologies by means of all laboratory tests, accelerated tests and “field” tests. Results are exceptional, much better than any conventional seal.
As regards the performance of the sealed anodic coating against alkali, it is possible, for example, to test the new seal with automotive test (Volkswagen TL 212 and others).
The new sealing will also be one of the highlights of the “Anodizing session” at the 8th Aluminium Two Thousand Congress in Milan, May 14-18th 2013, Hotel Melia and it will also be described in details during the special “Anodizing Workshop” parallel to the Congress organized by Interall and AAC (Anodizing American Council).

Dryplus – Drastic Reduction of Sludge Volumes From Anodizing Lines

Dryplus – Drastic Reduction of Sludge Volumes From Anodizing Lines

Dryplus – Drastic Reduction of Sludge Volumes From Anodizing Lines

download.pdf

The DRYPLUS process has been researched and patented by Italtecno with the aim to dramatically increase the “dry part” in the sludge produced as a waste in aluminium anodizing treatment lines. DRYPLUS allows to get a “dry part” equal to 40-50% of the total aluminium hydroxide sludge, in-stead of the usual 20-25% achieved in the tradi-tional processes. The environmental advantage of employing the DRYPLUS technology is evident, since the volume of sludge considered as an “industrial waste” is ac-tually halved, and the number of truck used to transport this volume of sludge is also halved. The cost effectiveness of DRYPLUS is also clear, since the costs for the disposal of the sludge is re-duced by half of what it could be with a traditional system.
