Metal Magic: Colour Anodising and How It Makes Aluminium Much Better


However, before aluminium can be put to good use, it needs to be processed further to be deemed beneficial. For instance, the untreated surface of an aluminium compound is prone to deterioration and not aesthetically pleasing. This is why companies that specialise in metal finishing like Badger Anodising (Birmingham) Ltd. anodise aluminium to make it more ideal for home and industry use.
First off, what is anodising? It is an electrochemical process that significantly increases the thickness of the natural film present on the aluminium’s surface. By building up aluminium’s natural coating, several valuable properties can be bestowed on an otherwise weak and brittle metal.
