Anodizing Services in Orlando
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the naturally occurring protective oxide. The resulting finish – depending on the process – is the second hardest substance known to man, second only to diamonds. The anodic coating is part of the metal but has a porous structure which allows secondary infusions such as a dye, Teflon etc.
Durability: Long life span, unmatched adhesion
Color Stability: Resistant to UV rays, won’t chip or peel
Easy Maintenance: No scars or wear, restore to original finish with mild soap and water
Low Cost: Lower initial cost, lower maintenance cost
Aesthetics: Larger color selection. Aluminum maintains metallic appearance
Health & Safety: Process not harmful to human health, will not decompose, is non-toxic and heat resistant
