Anodized Aluminum Applications


Anodizing is an environmentally safe electrochemical process that converts the aluminum metal surface into a porous aluminum oxide, ultimately creating an end product whose finish is more durable and weather-resistant. This beneficial result combined with the array of aesthetically pleasing color finishes opens up endless application possibilities for companies who anodize products and components in commercial, industrial, and consumer applications, even jewelry and artwork.

Common applications for anodized finishes:
  • Structures and architectural categories of all types
  • Appliances
  • Commercial and residential building products
  • Food preparation equipment
  • Furniture
  • Sporting goods and boats
  • Motor vehicle components
  • Jewelry and artwork

Examples of end products using anodized aluminum:
  • Building exteriors, such as storefronts, curtain walls and roofing systems.
  • Appliances such as refrigerators, dryers, coffee brewers, ranges, televisions, microwave equipment.
  • Vents, awnings, dust covers, light fixtures, storm doors, window frames, mailboxes, bathroom accessories, patio covers, and wall switch plates for buildings.
  • Display cases, pans, coolers, and grills for the food industry.
  • Tables, beds, files and storage chests for homes and offices.
  • Golf carts, boats, and camping/fishing equipment for the leisure industry.
  • Hundreds of components for motor vehicles of all kinds such as trim parts, wheel covers, control panels, and name plates.
  • Exterior panels for aerospace vehicles, clocks and electronic products, fire extinguishers, photo equipment, solar panels, telephones, picture frames, and bathroom accessories.
  • Interior decoration and trim.

The aesthetically pleasing results of anodizing combined with the functional benefits of increased durability offer numerous design opportunities for architects, builders, product designers and specifiers, as well as artists.
