Anodised Aluminium Angle
What is anodised aluminium angle and what is it used for?
Anodised aluminium angle is treated by submerging the profile into anodising solution and passing an electrical current through it, this creates aluminium oxide growth to form below and above the surface of the metal to increase corrosion resistance and surface hardness. It also improves the appearance and feel of the product so is highly recommended for decorative applications.
It is great in high traffic areas as it can withstand abrasive cleaners and desecration. Buying anodised metal trim and profiles is also cheaper and quicker than applying painted coatings after fabrication; an additional benefit over painted options is that anodised products do not chip or peel, as the aluminium oxide growth bonds to become a part of the material.
The satin finish can be renewed through cleaning making it cost effective to maintain. The anodising process is also favoured by those who prefer more ecologically sound options, as the chemicals created can be used by local water treatment facilities and uses no heavy metals nor produces any ozone reducing solvents.
