It is an electrochemical process where the surface of the aluminium and its alloys are coated to a porous aluminium oxide. Anodising is used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the metal parts. Anodising increases common erosion and wear resistance, making it the second hardest substance known to man.
Anodising the aluminium makes the metal stronger and more durable, by adding an oxide layer that is almost as strong as diamond. The oxide on aluminium is naturally corrosion resistant, making it a very hard, abrasive resistant and an insulator.
In terms of aesthetics, the anodising process adds a coloured anodic film that will retain and enhance the aluminium inherent beauty. These aesthetics and durability features make anodised aluminium the ideal material for residential, commercial and industrial projects.
