What is Anodizing ?
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the naturally occurring protective oxide. Click here for answers to common aluminum finishing questions. SAF provides both batch anodized aluminum as well as coil anodized aluminum. Batch Anodizing involves racking parts and immersing them in a series of treatment tanks. Extrusions, sheets or bent metal parts, castings, cookware, cosmetic cases, flashlight bodies, and machined aluminum parts are just a few of the items that are batched anodized. Coil anodizing involves continuous unwinding of pre-rolled coils through a series of anodizing, etching and cleaning tanks, and then rewinding for shipment and fabrication.
