Surface Treatment - Anodising for Preparation and Protection
Anodising can substantially increase corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and anodised parts provide better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal. ABL Aluminium Components has the capacity to anodise components produced from aluminium extrusions and ranging from 10 mm to 2.7 metres in shades of gold, silver, natural and black.
Anodising can be performed on parts you supply or as one of the added processes applied to aluminium extrusions and components we manufacture for you.
