Anodizing is an
electrochemical process for thickening the natural oxide coating always found on aluminum. This natural oxide coating is only .0005 mils thick, but the anodizing process can increase this film thickness to between .08
and 2.00 mils. This thicker oxide coating is more resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Anodized coatings are porous and have the ability to absorb dyes and pigments before they are sealed. This Produces an attractive
colored oxide coating, which is less likely to chip or peel than painted coatings.
