Anodizing is a metal finishing process that uses oxidation to convert the surface of a metallic to a ceramic state. While mainly used when plating aluminum, anodizing is also compatible with other nonferrous metals such as titanium, magnesium, stainless steel, zinc, copper alloys and more. Anodized aluminum is typically used for:

  • Protecting satellites while in space
  • Enhancing durability of roofs, walls and ceilings
  • Manufacturing computer hardware, household appliances and various building materials
