SAF has been anodizing since 1946 and is actively involved in the Aluminum Anodizers Council. We are one of the leading anodizers of North America.
SAF can custom anodize any one of our hundreds of stocked aluminum extrusion shapes that we usually ship the day after they are ordered! Most batch anodized sheet orders ship in 1-5 days. We also keep a large inventory of prefinished sheets in both anodized and painted finishes.
SAF will also anodize your metal- aluminum extrusions, aluminum sheets, fabricated brake shapes, aluminum rails, small parts, grills, louvers, frames, or aluminum coil. This usually requires a conversation with a sales representative at our Georgia or California location.
What is Anodizing ?
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the naturally occurring protective oxide. 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.
