Performance advantages of aluminum in aluminum cabinets

Aluminum cabinets is considered a breakthrough in the kitchen cabinet industry, because aluminum has outstanding performance compared with wood derivative cabinets, and has advantages that traditional cabinets cannot match.

Soundness of aluminum

The kitchen cabinet is often exposed to conditions of damp and high temperature, and aluminum is the only material with enough elasticity to resist it. Aluminum itself is a kind of solid material, so aluminum kitchen cabinets are difficult to deform or break. The application of aluminum profiles in the field of cabinets makes aluminum cabinets more durable than traditional ones.

Porosity of aluminum

In hot or humid countries, traditional wooden cabinets are always vulnerable to termites and other pests. And the food is easy to breed bacteria after long-term contact with perforated wooden cabinets. The non porous property of aluminum can not only prevent pests, but also prevent your aluminum modular kitchen cabinet from becoming a breeding ground for bacteria and other microorganisms.

Water resistance of aluminum

Damp is a big problem with wooden kitchen cabinets because it can cause water damage of the cabinet. For example, warping and swelling of cabinet components. However, aluminum is a waterproof material with strong waterproof property. This advantage has led to the popularity of aluminum modular kitchen cabinets in countries affected by hot, humid and changing climatic conditions.

Rust resistance of aluminum

Non rusting is another characteristic of aluminum as the preferred metal for cabinets. Aluminum is covered with a thin oxide layer, which can protect it from most corrosion. Especially after surface treatment, the corrosion resistance of aluminum has been further improved.

Environmental protection of aluminum

For those who love environmental protection, this is an additional benefit. The kitchen cabinet made of aluminum is one of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable storage solutions available. The aluminum material is also 100% recyclable, so your aluminum kitchen cabinet will not burden the earth.

The style can be customized at will

People often have a misunderstanding that aluminum kitchen cabinets only have monotonous metal design. In fact, the height, thickness and surface color of aluminum all can be customized. Chalco provides you with aluminum materials with both quality and beauty for the production of various aluminum cabinet products.

Aluminum foil and aluminum wafer in aluminum tableware

Because of its high barrier property, high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance, oil resistance, water resistance, non-toxic and tasteless characteristics, aluminum can be used as food storage and packaging materials to maintain food flavor and extend food quality guarantee period for a longer time.

Aluminum foil and aluminum circle products are most widely used in aluminum tableware. With the increase of market demand, the demand for high-quality aluminum foil and aluminum circle is also increasing. Chalco provides high-quality aluminum products, strictly controls the quality, and has its own unique requirements and capabilities in product quality inspection and transportation.

The aluminum performance advantage reflected in tableware

With the emergence of new household appliances, such as ovens, and people's increasingly high requirements for food storage, preservation, packaging and other aspects, the advantages of aluminum and aluminum products are increasingly prominent in the field of food storage and packaging field. This makes aluminum products more and more popular in the kitchen, and it is also welcomed by more and more downstream manufacturers.

High barrier, anti-oxidation ——can extend the shelf life of food

The aluminum foil's high barrier properties, moisture resistance, and oxidation resistance can isolate food from oxygen, water vapor, stains, etc., creating an excellent storage environment for food. Some aluminum foil packaging also adds a desiccant/deoxidizer or uses vacuum packaging or vacuum packaging methods to achieve the purpose of extending the shelf life of the food.

High mechanical strength-strong impact resistance and piercing ability

Aluminum foil has many excellent physical properties, such as high mechanical strength, high impact resistance, and strong puncture ability, making the food bag difficult to break, and can protect the food from damage caused by external factors such as extrusion, impact, vibration, temperature difference, etc., thereby reducing Loss during storage, transportation, and racking.

Strong adaptability-can adapt to various environments

Aluminum foil has the characteristics of high-temperature resistance, low-temperature resistance, oil resistance, water resistance, etc., and can adapt to various environments. The environment of food processing and production does not have much influence on its performance.

Easy to process-Can meet most packaging needs

Easy to process. Aluminum has a low melting point, good heat-sealability, and is extremely easy to shape, and can be processed into any shape according to the mold. The processed aluminum foil has excellent ductility and can be used to cover foods of different shapes. It is also easy to carry out surface treatment, such as the embossing process can make aluminum foil more beautiful and promote consumption.

Lightweight-Reduce transportation costs and reduce product packaging volume

The thickness of the aluminum foil is extremely thin, which can minimize the weight of the product while achieving the protection function. Lightweight packaging can reduce shipping costs and improve ease of use.
