Anodized products have an extremely long life span and can reduce maintenance cost by protecting the product from wear. Anodizing oxidises the outer layer of the product which makes it less effected by water, air, and other elements. If anodizing interests you, we have a great relationship with highly skilled suppliers that can do this finish.
If you’re looking for a way to lower the maintenance time and money for your product, anodizing can help. Surface stains and production marks are virtually nonexistent with an anodized product. To clean most dirt, a simple rinse will be plenty for an anodized product. Anodizing has a lower initial finishing cost than many other finishes as well as lower maintenance costs to offer long term savings.
Anodizing is a safe process. An anodized finish is chemically stable, will not decompose; is non-toxic; and is heat-resistant. Anodizing is an extended version of a naturally occurring oxide process. It is not hazardous and produces no harmful or dangerous by-products.
Anodized coating can still be welded, but it has a higher melting point then the base metal. We prefer t do any welding before the anodizing process takes place. It cannot be bent as the anodized finish is very strong and brittle. Any bending or tube forming work must be done before the anodized coat is applied.
Anodizing offers a huge number of gloss and color finishes. Anodizing also allows the metal to maintain its metallic appearance, unlike many other finishes. If the look of anodized metal doesn’t appeal to you, it also provides a better surface for paints, primers, and glues than bare metal.
