Aluminium which is not anodised and exposed to the elements soon corrodes. The process changes the existing surface to give a finish which has a high resistance to corrosion.
The aluminium can be left as it’s original colour or given any of six colours during the process as can be seen from the pictures.
WHAT IS ANODISING ?
Anodising is the creation of an oxide layer on the surface of aluminium by electro-chemical means. This oxide layer protects the underlying metal and prevents further corrosion from taking place. An additional benefit of this process is that the oxide layer that is created will accept certain dyes, thus allowing aluminium items to be finished in a wide range of colours.
The system has been designed from scratch to provide an easy and safe method for the amateur to successfully anodise aluminium* at a low cost. All the latest developments in chemicals and electronics have been integrated into the design to produce excellent results. The system utilises electronic control of the current supplied to the anodising tank, and due to the low voltage involved there is no risk of electric shock. The power supply has built in electronic protection to prevent damage should fault conditions arise.
* Aluminium items that have been cast are not able to be anodised.
