Anodizing is…

… an electrochemical finishing 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 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.
