Aluminium Finishing


Anodised extrusions have a thicker layer of aluminium oxide than raw aluminium. This provides the aluminium surface greater protection and is more durable. The thickness of anodising required will depend on the extrusion’s application. Anodising often involves an acid pre – etch treatment which gives the section a uniform satin like appearance . Colour dies can also be added to the process which provides the combination of aesthetically pleasing colours with enhanced surface protection. Anodising is often used for applications such as patio doors, office partitioning, electrical components, lighting and advertising display.

Aluminium Finishing

Why is aluminium finishing required?

Why is aluminium finishing required when the appearance and exterior quality of aluminium in its natural state is often fit for purpose? Why is a supplementary finish required? Below we briefly explain why. However if you are unsure, contact our customer service team who are on-hand to answer your questions.

Aluminium finishing is usually required for two main reasons:

  • To enhance the extrusions durability
  • To make it more visually appealing

Two of the most common aluminium finishing processes for enhancing the appearance of aluminium or enhancing its corrosion resistance are Anodising and Powder Coating. Which process you use is usually dependent on the final application of your extrusion.
