ALUCOAT certifies in Aluminium Stewardship Initiative ASI, its commitment to sustainability in the aluminium value chain.

ALUCOAT is very pleased to obtain the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) Certification for Performance Standard (V3 2022) as a commitment to improve sustainability throughout the aluminium value chain, all our stakeholders, and with SDG 17 Partnerships for the goals.

ASI is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain, setting 59 criteria under the three pillars of sustainability: Environment, Social and Governance.

ALUCOAT is in the process of implementing improvements focused on the sustainability priorities proposed by ASI in their strategy (2030-2050) such as:

  • Climate change, where aluminium accounts for around 2% of CO2 eq global emissions. It is required an aluminium sector aligned with 1.5°C and therefore a low carbon aluminium. ALUCOAT, as part of its commitment to SDG 13 Climate Action, calculates the Carbon Footprint (Scope 1 and 2) and increases the percentage of recycled aluminium in its products. It also has solar panels installed and ISO 50001 certification, contributing to the reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions.
  • Circularity, where aluminium is 100% recyclable and experiences no loss of properties or quality during the recycling process. To achieve this, ALUCOAT focuses on aluminium utilization measures, reducing raw material consumption. ALUCOAT also implements sustainable water management and carries out segregation and separation by aluminIum alloys. All of these efforts are highlighted by the recent attainment of the Zero Waste Certificate. These actions align with SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation, SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy, and SDG 12 Responsible Production and Consumption.
  • Positive nature, improving the resilience of our planet and our societies in aspects of ecosystems, habitats, species and biodiversity. Where measures such as sustainable water management and the commitment to increasing the use of recycled aluminium, as opposed to extracting primary aluminium, are related to SDG 14 Life Below Water and SDG 15 Life on Land.
  • Human rights, as a broad and cross-cutting issue throughout the supply chain. ALUCOAT promotes respect for human rights in new industrial projects and significant organizational changes, community development, workers’ rights, and occupational health and safety management with its ISO 45001 certification. This aligns with SDG 5 Gender Equality, SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, and SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities.

Aluminium recycling lead the change to sustainable industry

Recycling within industrial sector plays a key role in protecting the environment, conserving natural resources and reducing polluting gases.
Industrial companies have the potential to become change agents by adopting effective recycling practises.

ALUCOAT, specialist in coating aluminium coils is subject to a strict environmental management policy integrated into the 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle all the resources and waste that are generated during production process. Of the little waste that is generated, almost all (more than 90%) is sent to specialized waste managers to its treatment and subsequent recycling.

The company has developed a policy focused on promoting green aluminium and works with its suppliers so that most of the aluminium with which it works is recycled aluminium.
One of the advantages of using recycling aluminium is the energy saving. To produce one kilogram of recycled aluminium it is necessary a 95% of energy less than producing one kilogram of primary aluminium. It also means an important reduction of C02 emissions to the atmosphere, saving about 9 ton of CO2 for every ton of recycled aluminium. Furthermore, aluminium can be recycled endlessly times without losing its properties during the process, which favours circular economy.

ALUCOAT, promoting recycling as a commitment with the environment.

The best quality to insulation systems: airfin® y waterfin®

In the heat, you have to be very careful and offer solutions to combat high temperatures. One of the solutions most sough-after solutions at this time of year are the air-conditioned rooms because is where you can enjoy a better environment and pleasant temperatures.

For the production of air-conditioning systems or units is fundamental to use materials with excellent properties to thermic transmission and resistance to corrosion, such as aluminium. ALUCOAT is specialist in coated aluminium coils and has developed its high quality products airfin® and waterfin® to the production of different components to refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment.

  • airfin® is specifically designed to air-conditioning systems in large areas such as stores, shopping malls, but also automobiles, ships and trains. This is focused in the production of finstock to heat exchangers and, based on the hydrophobic properties and corrosion resistance, airfin® has a variety of products:
  • airfin® 100: this is the ideal coating solution to avoid fin corrosion. Based on epoxy resins especially designed for this application, this material offers the desired protection in a wide range of colours.
  • airfin® 300: this is designed to guarantee the properties of the product without being affected by U.V. rays or others chemicals reactions.
  • airfin® 400: fins made with this material are at least 300% more resistant to corrosion than bare aluminum.
  • airfin® 500: ALL IN ONE. The quality of airfin® 500 strengthen the resistance to corrosion and guarantee a life extension of the heat exchangers.

waterfin® offers two products with high hydrophobic properties that avoid the generation of ice bridges. It is intended for the manufacture of smaller heat exchanger systems and specifically designed for the food industry, heating and air conditioning systems for buildings, such as offices. Its two products are:

  • waterfin® 100: It is the ideal solution to standard working environments.
  • waterfin® 700: It has a double layer material with a high resistance to corrosion and for this reason, this is the best solution for working environments with high level of contamination.

In addition, for an extra in terms of resistance to corrosion, our products airfin® and waterfin® can be improved with the pre-treatment Alucoat® prelac Chrome free, that multiply the resistance to corrosion of coated aluminium.
