A nanometric layer of pure aluminium is applied on stainless steel for increased thermal efficiency and for heat shield applications

ShieldMet – innovative use of nanometric coatings of aluminium on stainless steel the result is high infrared reflectivity on stainless steel for increased thermal efficiency ideal for heat shield appli­cations.

ShieldMet is the perfect solution to combine the strength and corrosion resistant properties of stainless steel with the heat reflectivity of Aluminum. The Aluminum is  protected by a silicate based organic coating.

Advantages

  • Preserves aesthetical aspect of stainless steel under high temperature (up to 600°C)
  • High IR reflectivity up to 500°C
  • High resistance to thermal cycles 
  • Properties for  plasma vacuum coated Stainless Steel sheet
  • High IR reflectivity
  • High reflectivity in the visible range
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Good formability

Applications

ShieldMet is used wherever the need for high reflec­tivity, combined with good mechanical properties and durability, is needed. Some application examples : - automotive heat shields, exhausts, heating device reflectors, oven heat shields, bulbshields.

The material retains excellent formability,  resistant to detergents. For food contact it meets the standards off CE 1935/2004. In addition the coating can be applied to other substrates not just stainless steel, more details on request.
