Air Conditioner Foil: Hot rolling V Cast Rolling
Hot rolling and cast rolling are two different processing for air conditioner foil. As an aluminum foil producer, Haomei Aluminum can offer you both kinds. Learn more.
Air conditioner foil is an important aluminum fin stock material. It has the advantages of good shaping, good coating performance, high coating adhesion, good hydrophilicity and good corrosion resistance. The common alloys are 1100,1200, 3102 and 8011,etc.
There are two processing crafts for the converter foil:
1. Ingot- homogenization annealing- hot rolling- cold rolling- trimming- cold rolling- box rolling- slitting- finished product annealing - packaging
2. Casting and rolling- cold rolling- trimming- cold rolling- box rolling- slitting- finished product annealing- packaging
During the hot rolling process, the aluminum ingot produced by the DC casting method is hot-rolled into a strip of 2.0-10.0mm, and then cold-rolled and foil-rolled. The crystal structure of the ingot is composed of quenched structure of the outer layer and the columnar crystal and the equiaxed crystal structure in the central part.
The cast rolling has the characteristics of rapid solidification and directional crystallization. Its crystalline structure consists of columnar crystals on the surface and equiaxed crystal structure in the center.
Due to the rapid cooling characteristics of twin-roll casting, the internal grains of the cast-rolled strip are greatly refined, and the supersaturation of alloy elements such as Mn, Fe, Cr are achieved. And the particle size of the intermetallic compound is smaller, about Only 1/5 of hot rolled billet.
The difference in structure results in that under the same rolling and annealing conditions, the aluminum foil of the cast-rolled billet has higher strength and lower elongation than that of the hot-rolled billet. At the same time, the cast-rolled billet also has a relatively high working speed.
However, with the continuous advancement of aluminum processing technology and the development of new alloy materials, the current air conditioner aluminum foil by the cast-rolling method has been able to fully meet the performance requirements of various air-conditioning cooling fin forming processes.
At present, the air conditioner foil produced by cast rolling has been the mainstream product on the market. As a big aluminum foil producer, Haomei Aluminum can offer you both hot rolled or cast rolled aluminum foil.
