Anodising Advantages

  • Higher corrosion resistant
  • Increased abrasion resistance
  • Enhance surface finish
  • Unaffected by ultraviolet light

Anodising applies a thin, protective coat to the part, forming a protective oxide layer to create a barrier against corrosion. We use ISO 7599 Decorative and ISO 10074 hard anodising, the most durable anodising finish available on machined aluminium parts.

  • Flexible solution across multiple geometries
  • Single source partner to get finished parts shipped in days
  • Typical lead times of 5+ business days


  • ISO 7599 (decorative)
  • ISO 10074 (hard anodising)
