Pre-Treatment

We've Got It Covered

Custom Colour Anodising offer a variety of pre treatment options such as:

Glass/Bead/Grit and Aqua Blasting

Components are often blasted using any of the above techniques prior to being anodised. Blasting components can smooth out slight machine lines and flaws, giving a differing texture to the anodised product.

Chromate Conversion

Custom Colour Anodising offers both alochrome 1200 (Gold) and alochrome 1000 (Clear). The benefits of this process are:-

  • The surface is corrosive resistant
  • Alochroming forms a good bond for paint
  • Offers low electrical resistance

And due to the very thin coating there is no dimensional change to componets which have been alochromed.

Chemical Brightening

Another way of producing bright finishes on aluminium omitting the need for mechanical polishing (which can be costly). Most commonly used in the lighting industry for reflectivity, chemically brightening is also used for a decorative finish to give components that finishing touch.

For any further information on any on these processes please do not hesistate to contact us.
