Anodizing (Type II)
Anodizing is an electrolytic process that forms an aluminum oxide film on the surface of the material. The oxide film that is formed grows from the base metal as an integral part of the material. Typically 60% of the thickness builds into the material and 40% builds up. This oxide is hard, and is corrosion and abrasion resistant with excellent wear properties. The natural color of anodizing is typically light silver in appearance but the coating can be dyed to meet customer color requirements. This coating is commonly referred to as Type II Anodizing. Dyed (Color) Anodizing will give your products a professional, attractive appearance. Team Metal Finishing standard colors are Red, Blue, Black, Green and Gold. Other colors available upon request.
