A process for manufacturing a strip of aluminum alloy having high surface homogeneity with an upper side showing after a 1 μm thick sulphur anodic treatment, an optical roughness value SN measured on three 5 cm longitudinal sections and three 5 cm transverse sections, such that its mean variation on each section, defined by the ratio: (Maximum SN-minimum SN)/Mean SN is less than 20%, and the difference ΔSN=SN max -SN min is less than 20. The strip is manufactured by continuous casting between two cooled rolls from a casting tank containing the liquid metal connected to an injector, and feeding the liquid metal into the gap between the two rolls. The injector has an upper lip recessed by at least 2 mm with reference to a lower lip of the injector.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
