Anodizing aluminium – process description & design guide

Anodizing is an electrolytic surface treatment most commonly used with aluminium components. It creates a hard, durable, corrosion-resistant, non-conductive, and often reflective oxide finish on the outside surface of the anodized part. It also makes the surface of the component easy to dye and paint due to the porous nature of the oxide layer. For …
