Rolling ingots are used for the production of G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS plates. The chemical composition of these ingots is considerably limited in accordance with the GLEICH factory standard and extensive cleaning of the melt and specific casting parameters are required. Together with the specially-developed parameters of the subsequent heat treatment, we produce aluminum plates which have excellent characteristics for anodizing and hard anodizing and thus the fulfil the highest technical and optical applications. As with G.AL® C250, G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS is a precision cast plate, precision machined on both sides with protective foil.
After anodizing, displays and front frames made of G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS take on their unique excellent optical properties and considerably up value the products.
High degrees of machining and high demands on the visual appearance after anodizing can be easily realized with G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS due to homogeneity and very low-stress properties.
In particular, the packaging industry places very high demands on the appearance and functionality of anodized surfaces. G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS ensures both due extremely low micro porosity
Mechanical engineering and automation technology
Very narrow tolerances regarding thickness and flatness and the exquisite anodizing properties of G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS significantly shorten the production times and result in the perfect appearance of visual parts.
Medical and laboratory technology
After anodizing, for instance sliding surfaces must often have extremely smooth surfaces. G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS, with its very fine-grained structure and very low micro porosity, achieves optimal results.
Hard, uniform and smooth, functional surfaces are in demand for printing plates, for example, which also have to satisfy optical demands. G.AL® C250 ELOX PLUS exceeds these requirements.
