What is the difference between aluminum trim coil and PVC trim coil?
PVC trim is made from a honeycomb, cellular structure of polyvinyl chloride.
Aluminum Trim coil is a thin sheet of aluminum covered with a water-based paint coating used to cover the exposed wood trim on a home. The core material and the surface material are absolutely different with each other.
How to save the retains of the aluminum trim coil left in stock?
If the aluminum coil suddenly changes from a low temperature area to a high temperature area during storage, do not open the package immediately, because the aluminum coil may have oxidized at this time. You should wait for the aluminum coil to be used before unpacking it to avoid oxidation.
If there is rain or snow leakage in the warehouse, it is not suitable to place aluminum coils, because this may cause oxidation of the aluminum coils.
Make sure the storage environment is ventilated and dry, and avoid storing aluminum coils in humid places. Aluminum coils are non-ferrous metals. If they come into contact with water or are in a humid environment, they are easily oxidized. White oxidation marks will form on the surface, causing damage to the appearance. In severe cases, they cannot be used. Therefore, a dry environment is a necessary condition for storing aluminum coils.
The above are some suggestions for preserving and collecting aluminum coils. If you still have questions, it is recommended to consult professionals.
How to cut the aluminum trim coil?
Confirm that the tools are suitable: Before cutting color-coated aluminum coils, you need to confirm whether the cutting tools used are suitable for the aluminum coil material. Generally speaking, cutting aluminum coils requires the use of specialized metal cutting tools or equipment, such as metal cutting machines, saws, knives, etc.
Confirm coating stability: The coating of color-coated aluminum coils has a certain adhesion strength, but it is also easily damaged by external factors. When cutting color-coated aluminum coils, it is necessary to confirm the stability of the coating and try to avoid peeling, damage, etc. of the coating.
Control the cutting force: When cutting color-coated aluminum coils, you need to control the cutting force to avoid excessive force that may cause the coating to fall off or be damaged. At the same time, avoid using too little force, resulting in incomplete cutting or uneven cutting surfaces.
Use auxiliary tools: In order to make cutting more accurate and convenient, you can use some auxiliary tools, such as steel rulers, cutting mats, etc. When using these tools, you need to pay attention to the contact surface with the color-coated aluminum coil to avoid damaging the coating.
Clean the cutting surface: After cutting, the cutting surface of the color-coated aluminum coil needs to be cleaned to remove burrs, impurities, etc. to ensure the effect of subsequent processing or use.
In short, when cutting color-coated aluminum coils, you need to pay attention to the stability of the coating, control the cutting force, use appropriate tools, pay attention to cleaning, etc., to ensure the cutting quality and subsequent use effects.
If the color decades or scraped,can aluminum trim coil be used or not?

How to install the aluminum trim material?
*Measuring and cutting
Before making any cuts, measure the area you're working with multiple times to avoid any costly mistakes. When in doubt, it's better to leave a little extra material – you can always trim it down later.
*Use suitable tools
A brake, which is a device for bending aluminum trim, is crucial for this job. Other handy tools include aviation snips for cutting, a tape measure and a pencil for marking. Remember to wear gloves for safety as the edges of the cut coil are sharp.
*Consider of sone uncontral conditions
Aluminum expands and contracts with temperature changes. When installing, leave a small amount of space at the ends of the trim to account for this adjustment. Not doing so could cause the trim to warp or buckle.
Make sure the aluminum trim coil in place using aluminum or stainless steel nails because they won't corrode. Remember don’t make the nails so tightly, the aluminum trim material should be able to move slightly to accommodate expansion and contraction.
Position your seamcarefully. You should install them as careful as possible, and ensure the overlap properly for a water-tight seal.
If you want to Re-paint the trim coil, be sure to check its warranty information first,then you need to ensure that the trim coil is properly cleaned and primed first for the best finish. It's also advisable to use a paint that's formulated for use on metals.
