What is AC aluminum foil?

Air conditioning aluminum foil, often called AC foil or HVAC foil, is a type of aluminum foil used in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) industry. Air-conditioning aluminum foil is usually used to make heat-conducting fins for air-conditioning heat exchange and air-conditioning evaporators. It is one of the important alloys used in air conditioning manufacturing raw materials.

Why use aluminum foil for air conditioning?

Aluminum foil is one of the lower density metals, lighter in weight, and also has other properties.

1. Aluminum foil has good thermal insulation: Aluminum foil for air conditioning is usually used as a thermal insulation material, which helps capture and reflect heat, prevent heat from escaping, and can maintain the required temperature of a building or space very well.

2. Aluminum foil can be used as a moisture-proof layer: Aluminum foil is also an effective moisture-proof layer. It helps prevent moisture from entering.

3. Aluminum foil is highly reflective: The reflective properties of aluminum foil help guide heat or cold, reflecting radiant heat away from ductwork or preventing cold air from escaping from air conditioning systems.

4. Durable: HVAC foil is generally durable and able to withstand the conditions within an HVAC system.

5. Flexible and easy to install: The foil of air conditioning aluminum foil is easy to use and can be easily cut, folded and installed.

The production process of air conditioning aluminum foil.

1. Raw material preparation|

The raw materials for making air-conditioning aluminum foil are mainly aluminum alloy sheets, generally using 3003, 5052, 6061 and other aluminum alloy materials. These materials have good corrosion resistance, strength and processability, and can meet the production requirements of air-conditioning aluminum foil.

2. Material cutting

First, the aluminum alloy plate needs to be cut according to the requirements. Generally, a CNC cutting machine is used for cutting. The cut aluminum alloy plates need to be surface treated to ensure a smooth surface, no scratches, no oxide layers and other defects.

3. Aluminum foil forming

Surface-treated aluminum alloy plates need to be formed, usually using a stamping machine. The formed aluminum foil needs to be bent, welded and other processes to ensure the strength and sealing of the aluminum foil.

4. Surface treatment

The formed aluminum foil needs to be surface treated, usually using oxidation, spraying and other processes for surface treatment. Oxidation treatment can enhance the corrosion resistance and hardness of aluminum foil, and spraying treatment can increase the aesthetics and corrosion resistance of aluminum foil.

5. Quality inspection

The finished air-conditioning aluminum foil needs to be quality tested, mainly testing the size, surface quality, sealing and other indicators of the aluminum foil. Only aluminum foil that passes quality inspection can be put into use.

6. Packaging and transportation

Air-conditioning aluminum foil that has passed quality inspection needs to be packaged and transported, usually in wooden boxes, cartons and other packaging methods. During transportation, attention must be paid to measures such as moisture-proof, shock-proof, and drop-proof to ensure that the aluminum foil remains intact.
The above is the production process of air-conditioning aluminum foil. Making air-conditioning aluminum foil requires multiple processes, and each link requires strict quality control to ensure the quality and performance of the final product.
