Anodised Aluminium

Anodised aluminium is aluminium that has been through the anodising process to form an additional aluminium oxide layer that forms around the surface of the metal. Anodised aluminium is lightweight, strong and has great protective properties, though it does mean the aluminium is harder to weld, work or form than if it were left untreated.

Anodised aluminium is used for a wide range of projects; it has excellent corrosion resistance, and offers additional protection to the metal, so is often used in outdoor applications or environments where products will be exposed to moisture, wind or water, such as architectural or marine uses.

  • How is anodised aluminium made?

    Anodised aluminium is made when the untreated aluminium is submerged in an electrolyte solution and placed under a current to create a uniform aluminium oxide layer that acts as additional protection against damage and corrosion.

  • Is anodised aluminium heavy?

    Anodised aluminium is a great lightweight option, with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, making it a popular choice for many automobile, aerospace and marine applications.
