What is Anodised Aluminium?

Anodising is an electrolytic process, which transforms the surface of the metal into an oxide layer integral with the metal itself, which increases corrosion resistance and allows dyeing.  Contact Hisun today to get a quote for your project.

Anodised Aluminium

The technology of anodising has been established for almost 100 years.  While the process has been continuously refined, especially in terms of quality, the chemical and technological fundamentals remain the same.

It is not a coating and therefore not vulnerable to peeling or cracking like organic coatings such as paint.  A properly sealed anodic layer is impermeable and as such when severe temperature fluctuations occur the anodic layer is not subject to damaging physical changes.

The purpose of anodising is to form a layer of aluminium oxide that will protect the aluminium beneath it.  The aluminium oxide layer has a much higher corrosion and abrasion resistance than aluminium.
