What is Anodised Aluminium?
Anodising is an electrochemical process that converts a metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish and can be used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the metal.
The anodised coating is hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through.
Advantages of Aluminium
Anodized Aluminium name plates and labels are used extensively throughout industry for their resilient properties.
- Super Tough for exterior applications
- Resistant to UV light, salt spray and harsh conditions
- Chemical and solvent resistant
- Corrosion and abrasion resistant
- Can withstand high temperatures
Uses of Aluminium
Anodised aluminium is perfect to use for:
- Machine Rating Plates
- Serial Number Tags
- Dials & Scales
- Valve Tags
- V.I.N Plates
- Compliance Plates
- Control Panels
- Asset Tags
- Fire Door Rating Plates
- Building Signage
- Parking Signs
- Danger and Warning Signs
When To Replace?
With the properly specified anodising process applied and correct ongoing maintenance, aluminium signage can last indefinitely.
It would not be uncommon to expect the normal service life for an aluminium sign or plate to be in excess of fifty years under the right conditions.
This durability makes anodised aluminium the ideal solution for commercial signage, outdoor plaques and monumental use.
