AnodizingOur extensive range of custom anodizing capabilities includes forming oxide coatings up to 2.0 mils and permanent finishes in distinct colors. Equipped with over six decades of industry experience and a 50,000 square-foot modern facility with two high-volume anodizing lines, our team is well-poised to fulfill virtually any anodizing project.

Whether a customer is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the automotive, military, or medical industry, we can meet their aluminum anodizing needs.

What Is Anodizing?

Anodizing is an electrochemical finishing process that results in a durable and corrosion-resistant protective finish. In particular, aluminum is well-suited for anodizing treatments.

In contrast to other finishing processes that apply the coating or finish to the substrate, the anodizing process leverages the aluminum oxide layers that naturally occur in aluminum and increases them in thickness to form a fully integrated surface finish. Depending on the specifications of the anodizing project, the oxide layers can be thickened minimally or to more than 100 times their original thickness.

In addition to their functional benefits, anodized finishes also serve an aesthetic purpose. Industries that require high-quality aesthetic or decorative parts that do not sacrifice durability often employ this finishing process for their parts and products.

  • Anodizing Capabilities

    We offer a wide range of anodizing capabilities that use sulfuric acid as the electrolyte solution and nickel acetate seal as the sealing solution. Beyond these two staple factors, anodizing projects can vary greatly in terms of the pretreatment process, anodizing method, coating thickness, and finish color.

    Our anodizing capabilities are as follows:

    Pretreatment: Aluminum pretreatment, Alkaline Cleaner, Caustic Etch, Desmutting, and Bright Dip

    Anodizing Process: Anodizing Type II and III, Bright Dip, Camouflage, Color, Hard Coat, Immersion, Integral Coloring Dyeing, Matte Anodizing, PERMODIZE® (Graphic Anodizing), Satin Anodizing, Sealing, Surface Coating

    Finish Color (dyed and undyed): Black, Blue, Clear, Gold (Yellow), Green, Red, and Custom Colors May be Available

    Coating Thickness: 0.0001 inches (minimum) to 0.002 inches (maximum)

    Maximum Part Size: 10 feet (long) by 16 inches (wide) by 4 feet (high)

    Whether an anodizing project involves small to medium parts, high volume capacities, or military specifications, we can deliver a cost-effective anodizing solution with a fast turnaround. In addition to our anodizing capabilities, we also offer several value-added services, including PERMODIZE®, laser engraving, and packaging and assembly.
