ALUMINUM SHEET FOR LIGHTING PRODUCTS

Aluminum Sheet FinishingWhile the applications for SAF’s standard matte sulfuric acid anodizing for aluminum sheet are limited in the lighting industry, SAF offers a low-cost alternative when a satin, uniform aluminum sheet is desired.  The anodic coating protects the aluminum surface from corrosion and is typically known in the lighting industry as “non-specular” or “diffuse.”  Unfortunately SAF cannot predict a Total Reflectance because we do not know in advance how the metal will anodize.

  • Metal thickness: typically between 0.4mm and 1.61mm (0.016″ and .063″ inches)
  • Up to 49″ input widths
  • Color Anodizing (dyes)
  • 66″ maximum O.D., 10,000 lbs maximum coil weight
  • Anodic coating typically less than 3uM.

QUALITY CONTROL

  • Four Chemical Engineers (2 P.E.’s)
  • Two graduate Chemists
  • ASTM, ANSI, AAMA Testing Capability
  • SAF complies with all federal, state and local environmental regulations.

ANODIZING GUIDELINES

  • 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.
