Tips from Anodisers: Ensuring Flawless Results in Anodising Aluminium


Anodising is a great way to protect the surfaces of aluminium. It is a process that coats aluminium with a protective layer without affecting its mechanical properties. You can expect the characteristics like ultimate strength, percent elongation and yield strength to remain the same after the process. Skilled anodisers process aluminium meticulously but there are things that could go wrong especially if the material sent off to them were not in good shape in the first place. Here are a few tips to help you ensure flawless results while anodizing aluminium.

Clarify Your Specifications

Not all specifications for anodising aluminium will be the same for each project you take on. One tiny, wrong detail can affect the process, and you would end up paying for it still. To avoid that, you have to be upfront and specific with anodisers. Things like gloss of finish, colour of anodized coating, weight per area of coating, corrosion resistance measurement and aluminium alloy.
