If you want your metal products to make an impact on the market, you should see to it that they look good. Metal finishing processes help smooth out the rough edges of your products. Professional anodisers like Badger Anodising (Birmingham) Ltd. can help provide items, particularly those made of aluminium, with the finishing touch that would entice customers to take a second look and then make a purchase. Here are a few examples of metal finishing processes you’ll find useful.
The anodising process works by creating an oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. This happens naturally, but by using an electrochemical process, it can be sped up to create a thick, protective layer that would be useful for industrial purposes. The process itself involves dipping the metal in acid and running a current through it; depending on which acids are used and how long the current is passed through, the layer can have differing thicknesses.
