Materials and Applications of aluminium
EMAL-EMAK is an international aluminium cooperative association (ICCA) of which Zayed Copper is one of its member organisations. It is the sole distributor of Zayed Products manufactured by Emaar Aluminum Company Limited. It is also the only aluminum producer authorized to produce Zayed Copper in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In addition, it provides a further processing service to the companies that require it for their aluminium manufacturing process. It also has direct access to the aluminium market worldwide.
The company was established in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in 1985 and was initially engaged in the manufacture of aluminum pots and plates for kitchen and bathroom furniture. Later on, it broadened its business focus on the manufacturing and marketing of aluminium sheets for electrical and automotive applications. It now has extensive aluminium production plants in different parts of the globe, with a major manufacturing facility located at Sharjah in United Arab Emirates. It follows an advanced approach in the production of aluminium sheets for application in different industries including aerospace, automobile, dental orthodontics, medical, cosmetic, railway, computer and lighting industries.
The electrolysis process used for manufacturing aluminum uses sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) and water. Electrolysis is a complex process involving a combination of high voltage electricity and various chemical reactions. This combines with heat treatment in order to modify the aluminum’s molecular structure. This enables the metal to obtain a wide range of different alloys, each having unique properties.
Emaar Aluminum has recently attracted the attention of the global market due to the fact that it is recyclable. Apart from this, it also contributes environmentally to the preservation of the environment. It is noted for its ability to withstand corrosion and its non-corrosive property. It is also noted for its resistance to UV degradation, making it a popular choice for car parts. The company has also developed smart technology for vehicles using aluminium.
The aluminium industry is flourishing at a rapid pace. As a result, the demand for aluminium in the market has increased manifold, leading to a sharp rise in the prices. In order to meet this competition, several companies have come up with lucrative offers. These offers have led to an increase in sales and demand in the market. Some of the major players in the aluminum industry are Cansco, Bestar, Albaer, Azura, Blue Steel, Bradwell, Bromley, Bulldog, EMA and Emaar.
The processing of aluminium involves various steps. The first step of the process is by conditioning or solidifying the aluminium. After the conditioning is complete, the aluminium is then formed into sheets, flakes and sheets, which are then passed through cooling processes.
