Anodization (Type II & Type III)
Anodization is an electrochemical process used in aluminum, which results in the formation of a durable, corrosion-resistant and strong anodic oxide finish which will never chip and peel.
Type II anodization results in a relatively thin layer (8-12 μm) of material. It can be used to change the color of a component, and to make it more durable and corrosion-resistant. Type III anodization, often known as “anodizing hardcoat” consists of a thicker layer (50-125 μm) of material, and is used when durability, corrosion and wear resistance are essential.
