Anodising is an electro-chemical process - the surface of the aluminium is modified to create a very hard, transparent layer.
This process may be combined with electrolytic colouring to give a range of UV proof colours or organic dyes where the UV resistance will still be similar to coatings such as paint.
The anodic layer or ‘film’ remains 100% aluminium, so the full recyclability of the aluminium is not compromised.
The result is an exceptionally durable, corrosion-proof pure aluminium product which retains the all the qualities and the authentic metallic sheen of natural aluminium.
As part of the process, the anodic film thickness may be modulated according to the proposed end-use.
Anodised aluminium remains pure aluminium with all of its inherent qualities.
