Elements that Will Affect Colour Anodising of Aluminium Phone Cases


Known for its strength and lustre, anodised aluminium are often used to manufacture mobile phone cases. The durability of anodised aluminium is what makes the material suitable for such an application. The oxide coating on the aluminium after anodising is part of the metal and that is why it is sturdy.

A lot of high-end mobile phones use aluminium cases. Besides the strength, aluminium has aesthetic options. If you manufacture cell phones, consider getting anodised aluminium cases.

Why Colour Anodise

The colour consistency of anodised aluminium is a primary motivation for using the material in cell phone cases. One way that a phone manufacturer can offer versatility is providing them in different colours. However, some aspects will affect the process of colour anodising cell phone cases.

The Role of Anodised Aluminium in Different Architectural Applications


There are various processes that metals go through when they need to be aesthetically pleasing. Anodising is one of those processes that works for aluminium. Aluminium items go through anodising to improve their durability, quality, and colour stability. The process of anodising aluminium involves the use of an electrical current to form aluminium oxide, which is the surface film of the end product.
The use of negative and positive charges converts molecules into an anodic layer. The concentration of the electrolytes is one of the factors that will affect the quality of the film that forms after the process, which then results in an enhanced metal with an aesthetically pleasing finish with properties that architects use for different applications.

A Few Design Factors to Consider Before Anodising Aluminium Pieces


Aluminium is one of the most widely used materials for metal workers and artists. A few characteristics that makes aluminuim a good medium for art is its resistance to corrosion, non-magnetic properties, zero toxicity, lightness and strength. Artists often choose to anodise their aluminium pieces to strengthen the surface and even to add colour to it. Artists, however, must consider a few things before they subject their works of art to the anodising process in order to achieve the best results.

Decorative Anodising

For metals that are going to be used in intensive applications such as automobile parts, thicker oxide layers need to be applied. In decorative pieces, one can do with just a thin layer. This, however, comes with one drawback – it does not offer the same level of wear resistance as with hard anodizing. A thinner oxide layer will still give a good level of corrosion resistance which can help preserve aluminium better.

Polishing Aluminium and Other Metals for Better Protection and Lustre


Many of the stuff you have at home are made of non-ferrous metals, from the vehicle in your garage to the wedding ring on your finger. These metals are unlikely to rust anytime soon. In fact, some of them may still have the smoothness and lustre they have had when you first bought them. Those preserved properties are proof that these metals were excellently polished and finished before being turned into the products they are now.

How Polishing Helps

Even non-ferrous metals like aluminium, copper, and chromium cannot evade the onslaught of aging and corrosion. They will become paler and less attractive over time, especially if they are constantly exposed to the elements. Polishing and finishing are done to restore their original decorative appeal as well as to improve their chemical properties. Polishing aluminium, for instance, will enhance not only the metal’s sheen but also its tarnish resistance and durability.

Anodised Aluminium: Making Metallic Products Stronger and More Durable


When someone says aluminium, the first thing to usually come in mind is the foil you use to wrap leftovers. The truth is that aluminium is in more objects you use every day than the ones you already know—cans, vehicles, lipstick sleeves, jewellery, to name a few—and for good reason. Aluminium is the second-most abundant metallic element on Earth, right next to silicone, which by the way is an even less familiar element despite its abundance.

Aluminium is known for its shiny surface and resistance to rusting. The only time aluminium changes its appearance and properties is when it’s alloyed, cladded, or galvanized with other metals. There is, however, another way to improve aluminium’s properties and usefulness in various applications—anodisation. Anodised aluminium is known to last longer and to produce better decorative finishes.

Aluminium Anodising: Metal Finishing with a Wide Range of Applications


Few chemical or industrial processes that could possibly be mistaken for magic, but anodising metals, especially aluminium, definitely qualifies. Not only does the process thicken the oxide coating on the metal, it can be used to infuse the item with a range of beautiful colours and shades that will not run or fade over time. Aluminium oxide is harder and therefore more durable, offers a degree of electrical insulation, and is relatively inert, which means that the metal will not affect nor be affected by any other compounds that it may be exposed to.

This type of metal finishing can be used for a range of purposes, from industrial to domestic. The products that can be anodised for practical purposes include screws, nuts and bolts, and plumbing pipes and clips.

Aluminium Polishing: The Benefits of Using Anodised Aluminium Products


Aluminium anodising provides a number of benefits that can help to provide protection against the elements, increase longevity, and enable a product to be coloured.

The process of anodising can be traced as far back as 1923 when it was employed to protect certain parts of planes from the corrosive nature of salt water. In these modern times, anodised aluminium is a product that is often taken for granted due to its ubiquitous nature within society. What are some of the benefits associated with anodised aluminium?

Anti-Corrosive Properties

One of the most important advantages of anodised aluminium is that it is highly resistant to corrosion. This is accomplished by adding a protective layer to prevent oxygen from reacting with the surface of the metal. So, it should only make sense that products such as mobile phone cases, aluminium cans, spray bottles and bottle tops (such as those used with perfumes and soft drinks) will often utilise anodised aluminium.
