Unravelling the mysteries of anodizing aluminium
Aluminium is a very soft metal and therefore it is often mixed with other metal to give it more strength. Aluminium as such is highly resistant to corrosion, but the metal that are used to make aluminium alloy tend to corrode and therefore there is the need to anodize aluminium alloys to extend the life of the alloy. Anodising is a process through which the natural oxide thickness levels on the metal is increased and this helps to increase the corrosion resistance of the metal. Apart from corrosion resistance, the metal also gains wear and tear resistance and this helps the metal to last longer. Orego Metal Co. anodises some of the products that it manufactures according to the needs of the customer and their process of anodising is said to be one of the bet in the industry
The process of colour anodising is one in which colours are added to the metal or the alloy during the anodising process. This allows the anodised metal or alloy to have a different colour as required by the customer and Orego Metal Co. Uses some of the latest technology to ensure that the colour anodising process done by them is very effective and provides a perfect finish. The surface of the metal is treated with sulphuric acid, which will form small pores on the surface of aluminium and that will help the colour to stick on to the surface of the metal a lot better. Aluminium surface can be smooth and therefore will not be ideal if the colour is applied without making it porous to accept the colour.
Black anodising of aluminium is very commonly done as it helps to prevent the aluminium alloy from corrosion. Black is a universal colour that is accepted and is usually found in almost all electronic equipments and other products. Orego Metal Co. Uses black anodising process on most of its products that are meant for the customer, especially if the part will be visible from outside. The process of anodising aluminium is a process that involves certain specialisation and therefore has to be done with some care. Orego Metal Co. has the expertise that is required in black anodising aluminium and uses the experience that they have to ensure that the final product is of very high quality.
Aluminium is also anodised in different colours apart from black and some of the popular colour options used is gold and silver. By gold anodising aluminium, the metal can look like gold and will add to the beauty of the metal. Using gold in components is not feasible and to give the gold effect on certain products people use gold anodising process which will give the product the feel of gold without actually making the product expensive. Orego Metal Co. is well known for the quality of anodising that is done by them and it is no different when we talk about gold anodising. By using only high quality material and sophisticated processes, Orego Metal Co. ensures that the quality of the final product is always much higher than industry standards.
Silver is also used as a popular anodising colour for aluminium products and accounts for most of the anodising that happens on aluminium. Silver anodising aluminium can give it chrome like finish which is very common in products, especially automobiles where the use of aluminium is high. Orego Metal Co. has the experience that is required to make sure that the anodising process is done properly and that the finish on the final product is according to the requirements of the customer. By making sure that they maintain high standards, Orego Metal Co. has been able to rise to the top of the ladder of metal companies that deal with aluminium.
