Introduction to Aluminum WaterProof Cases

The most common response to protective cases in the usual watertight hard cases, or a custom-built flight cases & these are admittedly great choices for a huge range of scenarios. However, ignoring those manufactured from aluminium is a huge mistake.


Aluminium cases offer a wide range of features and inherent properties that can make them much more suited to certain industries or applications than other forms of the protective case.


Advantages of Aluminium Cases & Containers

The key advantages of using aluminium cases with details include

1. High Strength to Weight Ratio


In addition to being extremely lightweight, aluminium cases are also extremely robust and stiff.

The lightweight nature of aluminium boxes makes them excellent for transporting big or bulky objects, or for storing them in containers that are too large to fit in a standard shipping container. It also facilitates the handling process.


2. Water & Vapour Resilience Ability


Aluminum is a vapour-impermeable material, therefore it prevents moisture from penetrating or diffusing through its surface. In addition to this, the majority of aluminium casings are also resistant to water vapour because of their welded design. Foam or similar seals in the lid of these cases also protect against rain and water splashes.

This makes aluminium cases ideal for transporting sports training equipments, and has led to their widespread use by sports teams.


3. Deterioration & Oxidation Resistant

It’s a frequent fallacy that aluminium containers can rust if they’re exposed to moisture. A layer of oxide will form on top of the aluminum’s surface, shielding the case from further oxidation and oxidative degradation.

When it comes to sea and saltwater, aluminium trunks and containers are ideal for businesses such as offshore oil and gas, military / naval applications, and for those who like yachting and sailing, as well as fishing or utilising in coastal surroundings.


4. Ultra Voilet Rays Resistant

For aluminium casings, exposure to UV rays will have no effect on the material.

When exposed to the sun for any length of time, the material’s colour, look, or surface lustre will remain unaltered.

5. Strong and Durable with excellent Impact Tolerance

Aluminum’s tensile strength is commonly misunderstood due to its light weight. When it comes to protecting devices, aluminium and the casings made from it offer far superior fracture resistance than most other materials.

It is because of this that aluminium casings are often resistant to collisions, mechanical breaking, and fracturing. In practise, this implies that the material is less likely to rip, crack, or stress.

Despite the fact that aluminium casings would dent when subjected to high impact, the force of this will be totally absorbed by the deformation. Everything inside the case will be safe and secure thanks to the case’s impact-resistant design.


6. Extremely Resilient to Temperature Fluctuations

A trunk or container made of aluminium has the broadest operating temperature range of any commercially available protective case. There will be no change in the case’s integrity or strength between -80 degrees Celsius and 150 degrees Celsius.

The tensile strength and ductility of aluminium casings do not diminish at low temperatures, as they do in plastic casings, but rather increases as the temperature drops. Because of aluminum’s low coefficient of thermal expansion, it can withstand greater temperatures without warping.

7. Heat Dissipation


Because of aluminum’s excellent thermal conductivity, it is frequently employed in heat sinks and heat exchangers. Protective cases can benefit from this as well. The aluminium case walls, for example, effectively transmit heat away from any gadgets, electronics and other specialised equipment contained therein.

Aluminum, on the other hand, has a light reflectance of over 80% in a similar vein (including to radiated heat such as sunlight).


8. Non-Magnetic


Aluminium containers, unlike other metal cases, are not magnetic. The aluminium structure means that metallic instruments, modules, infrastructures, and commodities are properly kept without the risk of electromagnetic fields causing harm.

This is crucial for a variety of electronic and audiovisual devices, as well as many other kinds of gadgets.


9. Anti-Static / Conductive

Aluminium cases are ideal for safeguarding electronic equipment, static sensitive gadgets, and most contemporary computers and electrical equipment since they are excellent conductors of electricity and heat.

Among all metals, aluminium has the highest electrical conductivity to the weight ratio. The outstanding RFI / EMI shielding and ESD management provided by aluminium casings are as follows: (electro static discharge).

Aluminium is non-magnetic and an effective reflector of external interference such as electromagnetic frequencies of radio and radar, hence can be used in electronic equipement casings.

Keep in mind that this level of protection may not be adequate for some instruments or equipment, although anti-static foams can frequently offer the protection needed.

10. Easy Clean

The fact that aluminium is sanitary is still another important feature. Keeping aluminium casings clean is a breeze because to their flat surfaces, which also prevent them from retaining odours from the surroundings.

Another reason why aluminium cases are used to transport sports equipment, which is sometimes muddy and wet, and medical supplies is that they are more resistant to moisture than moulded plastic boxes.


11. Safe / Inert

Aluminium is completely non-toxic. It is also odourless, non-absorbing, non-sparking, non-magnetic, and non-flammable.

In other words, clean rooms and medical applications can safely employ aluminium enclosures. Aluminum cases are extensively utilised for the safe transportation of lithium ion batteries in part because of this.


12. Customisation

Aluminum casings may be customised in a plethora of ways. Despite this, almost all aluminium cases may be printed or given various customised finishes, including castors, wheels, handles, and so on incluidng mechanical processes such as brushing or polishing, chemical such as anodizing, or paint and powder coating.

With the ability to easily drill, rivet, and install bezel kits, aluminium casings may also be customised with unique foam inserts.


13. Recyclable


Finally, aluminium may be recycled in its entirety. Unlike moulded plastic, the casings may be melted down and used at the end of their useful life. Reduced demand on raw resources and reduced carbon footprints are both aided by this.


YonguBox IP68 Water Proof Enclosure

Keeping in view the advantages of alminium based cases – arguably YONGUBOX offer a unique YONGUBOX IP68 Water Proof Enclosure aluminium case options, with multiple advantages and a wide range of products divided in two different series, including YONGU L Series & YONGU M Series based on the market demands.

  1. YONGU L Series

The Young L series IP68 are water-resistant boxes with a variety of uses in consideration.

Four different models, including A, B, C, and D are available, with A models being full aluminium and B models being half aluminium and half aluminium in a box with a plastic cover (B, C & D).

The width and length are fixed, but the height can be tweaked. There are 10 various dimensions to choose from.




  1. YONGU M Series

YONGU’s M series of waterproof boxes can withstand protection class up to IP67/IP68.

To prevent water from leaking into the die-castings, extrusion boxes, and dispensing rings are used.

Eleven customizable dimensions may be selected, and the length can be changed. Laser engraving, silk screen printing, and cutouts (holes drilled) are all supported.













Highlghting Features to Conclude

Although, both YONGU L & M Series offer all the benefits of aluminium enclosures, however, the most highlighting features include

  • Waterproof Electrical Enclosures
  • IP68 Aluminum Protection Class
  • Tough and Robust for heavy-duty use
  • The dispensing ring is handy for preventing both hydrophobic and dust proof functioning.
  • Shock resistant diecast aluminum enclosure
  • Conductivity can be achieved by utilization of the contact between the unfinished inner surfaces
  • Complete customization of dimensions, hole drilling, surfac treatement, PCB printing and many others.
