Organization of the production of boards with high thermal conductivity based on the technology of obtaining a nanoporous Al2O3 layer on an aluminum plate through anodizing. The main consumers of the products are manufacturers of super-bright LED lighting equipment and other manufacturers of electronic devices with increased requirements for heat dissipation.

RUSALOKS LLC is an enterprise established in December 2010 to organize mass production of heat-dissipating elements based on the unique aluminum oxidation technology in Russia. In August 2011, the Company entered into long-term agreements with OJSC Vladimir Production Association Tochmash (part of the Rosatom State Corporation) for the lease of production and office areas located in Vladimir and equipment for the PCB production site. In September, the Company started production on rented equipment and sales of printed circuit boards.

In February 2012, the ceremonial launch of the first production line for the elements based on aluminum oxide-based technology with a production capacity of up to 200 panels (~6,000 dm²) per month was held.

In 2013, the second production line was launched, which doubled the total production capacity of the Company to 400 panels (~12,000 dm²) per month. The main products of the project are aluminum oxide printed circuit boards and LED modules based on them. At the end of 2015, the Company's total revenue from the sales of the products based on aluminum oxide technology increased 2.1 times, as compared to 2014.

Since the end of 2015, the products have been exported to foreign markets.

In 2017, the Rusoxide company was established, to which development and production of high thermal conductivity base plates and printed circuit based on aluminum oxide technology for power electronics was transferred.
