Sustainability in the manufacture of aluminium composite profiles is an important indicator for the quality of heroal system technology. The smart material usage starts with the manufacture of the profile semi-facings. Following the closed loop aluminium recycling principle A|U|F, recovered materials are returned to the production cycle.
The insulating strip used for heroal W 72 consists of 62 % renewable resources. Compared to usual strips of identical quality, heroal saves 20 % of non-renewable resources. Castor oil gained from the seeds of castor beans is the basis for sebacic acid, which, in turn, serves as a basis for renewable resources.
Eco-friendly production is also a priority when it comes to profile coating. Excessive powder quantities are collected and re-used in a state-of-the-art powder coating facility. Hence, both fabricators and partners also benefit from heroal’s commitment to sustainability.
