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.


Anodising Aluminium: Now a Growing Trend among High-End Smartphones

Gone are the days when majority of the phones produced in the market are made of plastic or of similar materials: now, with more people looking for sophistication in their smartphones, manufacturers are utilising metals, specifically aluminium that underwent professional anodising, for their products. It began with Apple’s iPhones, followed by HTC, Samsung, and Nokia smartphones, and with the potential of anodised aluminium fully realised, it won’t be long before metal phones dominate the mobile manufacturing industry.

Metal in Smartphones

Last year saw an increase of phone models utilising metals in their designs, from the Galaxy Note 4 from Samsung to the acclaimed HTC One M8, all boasting metallic and shiny looks. If Ben Wood, director of research from CCS Insight, is to be believed in, metal is now a “de facto element of any flagship smartphone. If you have a premium smartphone range metal is mandatory.”
