wingstrut-chrome-smallAnodising is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts.

The process is called anodising because the part to be treated forms the anode electrode of an electrical circuit. Anodising increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than does bare metal. Anodic films can also be used for a number of cosmetic effects, either with thick porous coatings that can absorb dyes or with thin transparent coatings that add interference effects to reflected light.

At Stainless Plating, we offering the following types of Anodising:

  • Anodise & Dye
  • Chromic Anodising
  • Hot & Dichromate Seal
  • Sulphuric Anodising
  • Tartaric Sulphuric Anodising (Coming Soon)

We also offer a range of surface conditioning options including:

  • Pre-treatment/Etching – to reduce surface scratches
  • Satin Finish – achieved through increased etching
  • Masking – available to specific customer requirements
