Anodized Aluminum

Anodized Aluminum - What It Is, How It's Made

anodized-color-aluminum-parts-chains-kyle-design.jpgAnodized Aluminum is created from aluminum metal that has undergone an anodizing process; that is, the metallic surface of the aluminum has been electrolytically coated with a decorative oxide.

Next, to achieve the beautiful colors, the metal is immersed in dyes, and as a final step, it is sealed. Once applied, this durable coating protects the aluminum from corrosion and abrasions, preserving the natural luster and texture of the metal through normal wear and tear.

In addition to preserving the life and beauty of the metal, the anodized finish also provides the following benefits:

  • Fade-Resistant Color: The electrolytic process provides protection against UV radiation for color stability - anodized aluminum won't fade, chip or peel.
  • Low Maintenance: Because anodized aluminum is highly resistant to scratches, moisture and wear, it can be easily cleaned with soap and water.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Anodized aluminum doesn't produce any dangerous by-products, and it doesn't harm human health or the environment.
  • Fabrication: Anodized aluminum is produced in many forms: sheet metal, ball chain, tubing, washers, extruded parts and more.

You will find anodized aluminum used as a striking color accent on many unique gift items through our site. These include Drinking Flasks, Business Card Holders, Stamp Boxes, ID Badge Reels, Letter Openers, Decorative Ball Chain Lanyards, Pill Boxes, Jewelry, Money Clips, Purse Hooks, and much more.
