Marketed under the Hycot tradename, aluminium tubes and bars can be coated with polyamide such as PA12. This coating results in a product with exceptional corrosion and stone impact resistance properties.
Polyamide coated products will not chip, peel or flake under the wide range of exposures and service conditions. The coating is available in multiple colours. An unique feature of the coating is that it is very easy to join plastic parts or other HYCOT™/® aluminium tubes and products. This allows for designing very cost effective systems based on simple and clean processes, without any need for further corrosion protection. Typical joining / welding methods are ultrasonic, spin friction and induction welding.
Some characteristics of our HYCOT™/® products:
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Easily bent and formed
- The polyamide coating can be used as a welding substrate
- High surface quality
- Stone impact resistance
- Unchanged expansion capabilities of the aluminium
- A multitude of colours
