Proper formation of aluminum oxide coatings provides aluminum with a naturally decorative appearance and increased resistance to corrosion and abrasion. Normally between .0001" to .001" thick, sulfuric anodizing lends itself readily to clear and color work, as the coating is more transparent than other types of anodizing. In addition, it serves as a base for color absorption to create decorative finishes. Dyes can be deposited into the pores of the anodized layer and then sealed. The result is a highly desirable, rich, intense, permanent color finish.
Aluminum can be anodized and dyed to match a given decor or to simulate a particular metal. Click here to view our selection of dye colors or select the dye color chart PDF to the right in the Resource Links. For Custom designs in anodizing, please visit our Pioneer Metal Fx™ section.
