Anodizing

Anodizing the process in which aluminum oxide is created on the surface of an aluminum part by placing it in a bath of acid and running a current through. This anodizing process offers numerous benefits, but generally corrosion resistance and durability are among the most desired. The process itself can be modified to suit different industry applications

With over 25 years experience, our staff and processing techniques are among the best. That is why we are entrusted with some of the most complex anodizing jobs. From the semiconductor industry to NASA, we work hard for our customers to provide the best quality, speed, and reliability of any anodizer.

Our robust processes include a proprietary computer controlled rectifier that ensures consistency in all anodizing runs, a lean setup that allows us process jobs that are as small as one part to hundreds, and a dedication to ongoing improvement that we can leverage to improve quality and lower costs for our customers.

Anodized Part

Anodizing Advantages

Corrosion Resistance: Unlike many finishes, anodizing greatly enhances the life span of the metal. This is because the anodize layer is not a surface coating, but fully bonded to the underlying aluminum substrate.

Aesthetics: Anodized parts can be black or gold dyed to create a fantastic look that is also functional.

Lower Maintenance Costs: Given the corrosion resistance, anodized parts have significantly lower maintenance costs. Once anodized and sealed, wear and tear will not appear like it will for traditional aluminum nor will it be difficult to clean.

Non-Reactive: The anodize coating is chemically stable, will not decompose, and will not endanger human health.
