Technical Application Solution: White Goods
More and more, the white goods industry has leaned towards the use of lighter and more efficient materials to manufacture products. One area where this is evident is the use of aluminum foils as heat shields, protecting components from high internal temperatures. For example, in refrigerators aluminum foil is commonly found in control boxes, around defrost heaters, light bulbs and LEDs, and electrical harness connections. If we take a deeper look at the components provided by tier one suppliers, aluminum foil is used in applications that protect air ducts components made of polystyrene; plus you will also find aluminum foil die cuts that serve as patches for the back of the refrigerator (these are commonly applied on the pre-foaming process after having routed all the harnesses, especially in the compressor and condenser areas).
