Anodizing

Production of a resistant high strength oxide layer

Anodizing is the production of a resistant, high strength oxide layer on the aluminium surface. This not only has a protective function but also provides a high quality and distinctive metal look. The surface can also be coloured by the embedding of colour pigments. This allows the aluminium to have a colour spectrum spanning silver, gold and bronze and even black. Mechanical pre-treatment can also be used to produce special effects , such as, for example, the „architectural bronze“ look.

In combination with further refinements

the interaction of mechanical processing (e.g. grinding) and anodising strengthens the expressiveness of the metal surface.
