For many applications, the surface appearance of the metal is critical. Anodizing is a multi-step process whereby aluminum is electrochemically processed to form a layer of aluminum oxide (anodic) coating which protects the aluminum beneath. Our cutting-edge anodizing line is capable of producing Natural, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Spectro (Blue, Green and Gray) finishes, meeting the standards set by QUALANOD – a quality label that guarantees high-quality Aluminium Anodizing. Our color specialists have developed proven methods and formulas to ensure accuracy, conformity and consistency for all your color requirements. This allows us to give decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finishes to metal surfaces.

Once the materials are received from the extrusion Department in a mill-finished state, visual inspection is conducted according to QAP 4-10 to check for damages, scratches, extrusion faults, atmospheric corrosion and oxidation. Our state-of-the-art facility houses equipment capable of both electrolytic and organic immersion coloring processes to anodize parts in both standard and custom colors. Applications are almost limitless, be it architectural or automotive structures requiring protection from wear and corrosion.

Professional anodizing ensures durability of our aluminum products and provides minimal maintenance throughout most environments including the automotive and architectural industries we serve. It also provides better adhesion of lubricants to raw metal and reduces galling of threaded components. Rest assured, our anodized aluminum is reflective, customizable, consistent, and 100% recyclable and will never chip, flake, peel, rust, or weather. Gulf Extrusion LLC’s Anodizing will provide the quality you demand at a price you can afford. Our wide range of colors and unmatched longevity, as well as our environmentally sustainable methods, expedited response and precision services, are what makes our aluminum the premier solution for designers worldwide.

Benefits of Anodizing

The materials are received from the extrusion Department

  • Improved Aesthetics: Creates a beautiful metallic appearance, available in a variety of gloss and color choices.
