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

Specialists from ItN Nanovation and RUSAL are currently studying large-scale introduction of Nanocomp Metcast at RUSAL’s aluminium smelters.

RUSAL could become the first Russian company to use coatings from ItN Nanovation.

UC RUSAL is one of the world’s largest producer of aluminium, accounting in 2010 for approximately 10% of global production of aluminium and 10% of alumina.
