Proudly Anodized in the USA
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that enhances aluminum’s natural oxide surface. Extruded aluminum profiles are immersed in an acid solution under controlled conditions. An electrical current is passed through the solution to produce an aluminum oxide film. This film is extremely hard, durable and resistant to corrosion. It serves as a color anchor in the anodizing process. Anodic coatings can yield a wide range of characteristics such as thickness, hardness, porosity, and protective value; all are dependent upon the specific process used, the alloy, and the length of treatment time.
