ANODIZING IS AVAILABLE IN AN INFINITE NUMBER OF COLORS, INCLUDING LT, MED, DK, STATUARY BRONZE, BLACK ANODIZING…
Volume batch finishing can significantly impact the pricing of anodizing services. More anodizing per anodizing color is better. This is because an anodizer must use enough dye to charge an anodizing tank in which to completely submerge aluminum parts for anodizing. With large parts, say 24′ long, dyeing can be very expensive, many thousands of dollars in ultility costs, to charge a 30′ tank with a light fast aluminum dye for anodizing. The anodizer must recoup this cost in his pricing.
…BUT STICK WITH THE STANDARDS TO AVOID CUSTOM COLOR ANODIZING SETUP CHARGES
Standard color choices, including Light Bronze, Medium Bronze, Statuary Bronze Anodizing, Black Anodizing can have a very positive impact on anodizing setups. To avoid anodizing setup charges, anodizers like SAF, who offer architectural anodizing may reserve tanks for commonly used clear (silver), a selection of bronze anodizing choices & black anodizing jobs. SAF Gold Anodizing is also a common anodizing color choice, and may also help customers avoid anodizing set-up charges. We encourage customers to Contact an SAF Anodizing Pro beforehand.
