SAF provides both batch anodized aluminum as well as coil anodized aluminum coil. Batch processing 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 finishing involves continuous unwinding of pre-rolled coils through a series of etching and cleaning tanks, and then rewinding for shipment and fabrication.
