What is Anodising?

  • Anodised machine parts

Anodising is a process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. It increases corrosion and wear resistance, and during the process the anodised aluminum surface can be dyed many different colours.

Anodising is an environmentally safe electrochemical process that converts the aluminum metal surface into a porous aluminum oxide, ultimately creating an end product whose finish is more durable and weather-resistant.

This beneficial result combined with the array of aesthetically pleasing colour finishes opens up endless application possibilities for companies who anodise products and components in commercial, industrial, and consumer applications, even jewelry and artwork.
