A lot of people like Apple’s laptops and mobile gadgets, and most of this admiration stems from how good they look. Their smooth and polished design certainly appeals to many consumers. Furthermore, these devices don’t just come in shiny, steel grey cases but in many colours, too. All of these come from the wonders of anodising.
Anodising is the formal name for the process that creates a layer of oxide coating on a metal. This happens naturally when metal interacts with the air, but when done electrochemically, the process can be accelerated and allows for the creation of a protective layer. It’s a good thing companies like Badger Anodising (Birmingham) Ltd. can professionally anodise most of the aluminium that you will use for your products.
