Anodized Aluminum Spacer Bars

coilAnodized Aluminum Spacer Bars for insulated glass

Manufacturers worldwide have used SAF’s clear anodized finish for aluminum spacer bars. Anodized Aluminum Spacer Bars have several benefits, including: increased laser-welding speeds, better adhesion of the sealant to the metal, and a clean surface for material handling during the manufacturing process. The matte finish also minimizes reflecting sunlight.

GUIDELINES FOR ANODIZING

  • For good appearance, be sure to use anodizing quality (AQ) aluminum
  • Anodizing surface quality is dependent on the metal we start with. Anodizing does not cover up scratches or water stains.
  • Anodized Aluminum is corrosion resistant and Coil Anodizing improves material handling and allows for a more uniform appearance.
