The explosive growth of mobile computing, telecommunications, home entertainment and other consumer electronics devices is driving an ever-increasing use of aluminum. Products made from aluminum are easily recycled, using as little as five percent of the energy required for the production of the metal from its ore.
Novelis innovation and expertise is leading the way in this emerging market, creating premium products that serve both the consumer electronic and household appliance markets. Working closely with our customers, many of whom are global brands, Novelis can supply materials solutions that help turn today’s ideas into tomorrow’s innovations.
Aluminum Electronics Parts
The exploding market for an ever-increasing array of consumer electronics parts is made possible by continuing innovation in integrated circuitry, popular new software applications and the lightweight, durable and attractive surface properties of aluminum. From smart phones, tablets and laptops to flatscreen TVs, aluminum is becoming an integral component in the design, development and production of the latest personal devices and in-home entertainment systems the world over.
Aluminum is rapidly becoming the product of choice in consumer electronics parts because of its:
- Lightweight characteristics
- High formability
- Superior heat dissipation and electrical conductivity
- High corrosion resistance
- Attractive surface properties
Novelis is leading the way in producing customized premium flat-rolled aluminum products for a host of consumer electronics parts and products. Aluminum products developed according to customer specifications are supplied in coil or sheet form, and then further slit or cut to length by third-party distributors or customers themselves. Our world-class manufacturing and technical expertise lends critical design and manufacturing assistance to the world’s leading brands, enabling Novelis to quickly respond to the consumer electronics market’s short product lifecycle and ever-changing requirements.
HDTVs and Monitors
Novelis offers aluminum coils and sheet in alloys for main board and back cover of LED TVs, LCD monitors and main board of LCD/LED TVs. Our aluminum products offer the best solution to the newly-emerging and fast-growing big screen HDTV market. Leading LED TV manufacturers including Samsung, LG and others call upon Novelis to supply critical parts, such as back panel, bottom chassis, bezel and stand structures for some of the largest, most brilliant displays on the market today.
Cell Phones, Laptops and Entertainment Electronics
Cell phones, laptops and digital music players rely on the durable, lightweight and attractive qualities of specialty aluminum. Our technically sophisticated material has a commanding impact on the latest designs, providing both a technical advantage, as well as an attractive visual ambience. Aluminum housings dissipate heat while aluminum’s resistance to the effects of weathering is put to good use in applications as varied as outer housings, rod antennae and satellite dishes.
Good formability and conductivity make aluminum useful for condenser case products, which are manufactured via drawing processes. Manufacturers of these applications rely on Novelis to provide high quality aluminum coils or sheet in alloys such as 1050 and 3004.
Scales, Dials and Nameplates
Novelis produces pre-painted aluminum for scales, dials and nameplates in laser engraving quality, in the form of a surface-treated coil or sheet. Specialized coatings are applied by rollers. Printing via standard commercial inks and paints mean that Novelis products require no special materials.
Aluminum Parts for Home Appliances
The versatility and benefits of aluminum parts for home appliances are now being extended into your kitchen, adding elegance to everyday life at a lower price point. Today, more and more appliances and other items, from refrigerators to coffee makers to even pots and pans, are being made from aluminum, and Novelis is leading the way.
Aluminum used in household appliances is:
- Easy to clean
- Resistant to dents, marks, scratches and corrosion
- Thermally conductive
Aluminum: The Ideal Material for Refrigeration
Aluminum is the ideal material for the design and construction of refrigeration systems. Its metallurgical characteristics transmit heat rapidly, which facilitates the cooling process and guarantees highly efficient refrigeration. Some of the biggest names in refrigeration worldwide use Novelis’ aluminum products in painted, brushed, plain or embossed form.
Novelis Fusion™ Making a Mark in Your Kitchen
Innovation and Novelis go hand-in-hand. In the past, when it came to kitchen appliances, conventional aluminum was either too strong with limited manufacturing and surface finish capability or too soft and without the dent resistance needed to avoid wear and tear.
Novelis Fusion delivered an innovative solution to this challenge: combine an alloy delivering strength in the core with another alloy delivering the outstanding surface finish capability in the outer layer, into one aluminum sheet product. The result is a strong, easy-to-form material that also delivers a brilliant, aesthetic finish.
Novelis Fusion is available in a palette of finishes, including:
- Painted surfaces
