Radiator Applications

Did you know radiators are not only commonly manufactured in steel and stainless steel but aluminum as well?

Radiators are made from conductive metals, which means that heat travels through it quickly. The most common radiator materials are; steel, stainless steel, and aluminium and cast iron. Steel creates the right balance between heat and efficency. Not only that, but steel is relatively easy to shape which makes it the the most common material used in radiator manufacturing. Stainless steel is another popular choice because of its durability, resistance to corrosion at high temperatures which is important since radiators constantly have hot water running through them. That leaves us with aluminum which is also popular due to its ability to heat up faster than both steel and stainless. Aluminum is becoming more popular in radiator manufacturing as it is a recyclable metal which is an appeal as manufactures look for greener alternatives.
