Leading Anodising and Polished Aluminum Company to Launch New Website


Birmingham, West Midlands (15 January, 2016) – Badger Anodising (Birmingham) Ltd, a leading anodising and polished aluminum company will launch a newly designed website. The company has commissioned a reputable web designer based in the UK to take on the task of revamping the look and functionality of the current website. The company is hoping to unveil the new website sometime during February or March this year.

A representative of Badger Anodising explains that the company has decided on a new website for two main reasons. “The first being to make it easier for our site visitors to see exactly what it is we can offer them from the home page more easily. This is because most of our visitors enter the website via the home page.”

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 Popularity of Anodising: Why People Opt for Anodised Aluminium


There are a number of extremely beneficial properties in regards to anodised aluminium and numerous Birmingham clients are taking advantage of this modern technology.

Anodising is an electrolytic process which involves coating metals such as aluminium with a thick external layer of oxide materials. All science aside, there are countless benefits that this technique can provide.

Helping the Environment

Before delving into the physical characteristics of an anodised product, it is important to point out this this process is environmentally friendly. As opposed to traditional methods, anodising uses only a minimal amount of harmful substances such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Also, anodised products such as cans and mobile phone cases last much longer and less waste is ultimately produced. Individuals and companies who are embracing a “green” approach should appreciate these factors.

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.

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.

Anodising Aluminium Breathes New Life and Adds Colour to Buildings


More importantly, anodised aluminium is more resistant to corrosion. The metal’s oxide layer is hard and self-renewing, thanks to its ability to spontaneously form a thin yet effective layer that is able to prevent further oxidation or corrosion. Weathering is also not a problem for anodised aluminium, and can withstand exposure even to carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

Any building can achieve a dash of colour without paint through having anodised aluminium. High quality ones can be found only from anodising companies in Birmingham, like Badger Anodising.

Anodising Aluminium for High-Quality Products and Eco-Friendliness


As it is highly resistant to corrosion, aluminium is one of the most preferred metals for both industrial and aesthetic purposes. When anodised, an aluminium product may last longer, look better, and even becomes 100% recyclable for other applications. This saves a lot of energy and other resources needed to produce aluminium straight from raw materials.

How Anodising Helps Aluminium

Aluminium is already highly resistant to corrosion in itself because of its inherent protective oxide layer. The anodising process enhances this property, along with its other fine characteristics, to create a more durable and versatile product. A thin yet strong finish, called anodic coating, is added to the aluminium surface, resulting in the second hardest man-made substance next to diamond—anodised aluminium.
