Aluminum Anodize Type II is an electrolytic process that transforms the surface of aluminum into an aluminum oxide coating. The product becomes more durable, improving corrosion and abrasion resistance. Due to the porous nature of the oxide coating, the material now becomes a blank canvas where it is possible to dye it in a variety of different colors, or it may also be silkscreened and imprinted with graphics, as required.
Anodize Type III (hard coat) is an electro-chemical process that transforms the surface of the metal into an aluminum oxide coating. Amongst the benefits of Type III Anodizing is superb abrasion and wear resistance, and excellent dielectric properties.
Bright Dip or Chemical Polishing is a pre-treatment used to enhance the sheen of aluminum. Anodizing the product after bright dipping will protect the metal against corrosion and preserve the luster of the metal.
