Frankfurt / Saarbrücken, Germany | Posted on December 21st, 2011

Nanocomp Metcast are innovative nanocoatings tailored to casting machinery. They extend the service life of molds and lengthen the intervals for maintenance of casting conveyors. As a result, the casting process becomes more efficient at a lower cost.

Presently specialists from ItN Nanovation AG and RUSAL are studying large-scale introduction of Nanocomp Metcast at RUSAL's aluminium smelters. RUSAL would become the first Russian company to use innovative coatings from ItN Nanovation AG, joining a noteworthy list of global metallurgy companies like Nordural (Iceland), Qatalum (Qatar), Hydro (Norway), Talum (Slovenia), EMAL (United Arab Emirates), Konzelmann Metallschmelzwerke (Germany), and AMAG Casting (Austria).

UC RUSAL is the world's largest producer of aluminium, accounting in 2010 for approximately 10% of global production of aluminium and 10% of alumina. RUSAL employs 72,000 people in 19 countries, across 5 continents. RUSAL's ordinary shares are listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (Stock code: 486). Global depositary shares representing UC RUSAL's ordinary shares are listed at the NYSE Euronext Paris (RUSAL / RUAL). Russian depositary receipts representing RUSAL's ordinary shares are listed on MICEX (RUALR) and RTS (RUAL) stock exchanges in Moscow.
