Anodizing Color Choices
Anodizing is available in an infinite number of colors, including Lt, Med, Dk, Statuary Bronze Anodizing
The effect of volume on pricing of anodizing color choices is important. This is because an anodizer must use enough dye to charge an anodizing tank in which to completely submerge the parts for anodizing. With large parts, say 24′ long, dyeing can be very expensive. For example it can cost $15,000 to charge a 30′ tank with a lightfast dye. The anodizer must recoup this cost in his pricing.
…But stick with the standards to Avoid Custom Color Anodizing Setup Charges
Stick with the basic Anodizing Color Choices. To avoid setup charges, anodizers offering architectural anodizing may reserve tanks for commonly used clear (silver), a selection of bronze anodizing choices & black anodizing finishing. SAF Gold Anodizing may also avoid anodizing set-up charges. We encourage customers to Contact an SAF Anodizing Pro beforehand.
