Anodizing is the process of forming a thick oxide layer of aluminium. This aluminium oxide coat makes it resistant to further corrosion.
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish, usually on aluminium and its alloys. The oxide layer is typically 5 to 30µm in thickness and is used to improve surface resistance to wear and corrosion or as a decorative layer. The resistance can be improved further by making the oxide layer thicker.
Benefits of anodizing
- No possibility of fading.
- Long-term on-site durability.
- Authentic metallic sheen, lustre and feel.
- Excellent Corrosion Resistance.
- Excellent Abrasion Resistance.
