Clear & Dyed Anodize

Clear Anodizing
Pioneer's Clear Anodize process is ideal for providing decorative qualities to parts. Proper formation of aluminum oxide coatings provides aluminum with a natural decorative appearance and increased resistance to corrosion and abrasion.

Dyed Anodizing
Pioneer’s Dyed Anodize process provides a rich, vibrant, permanent color finish. Aluminum can be anodized and dyed to match a given decor or to assimilate a particular metal.
