The Process

Parts are coated in accordance with the same principle as in standard galvanisation. This also includes all the advantages and disadvantages of this process.

All galvanically coated materials can be covered with Galvano Aluminium. The temperature resistance though should reach at least 100°C.

The main difference lies in the fact that it is not possible to deposit aluminium in aqueous solutions.

For this reason, only aprotic solutions can be used.

Water may also not be used when pre-treating parts. This is why suitable organic solvents are applied. Similar to electrolytes, these solvents also display negative properties: easily flammable and associated health risks.

For this reason, the process must be carried out in hermetically sealed plants. This benefit of this type of operation is that it is ecological, in other words, almost no emissions. The drawback: higher costs.

All aluminium treatments can then be applied to this layer and it is usually easier to handle and of higher quality than most aluminium alloys used. This is due to the high purity class of the galvanised layer.
