The Advantages of Aluminium Anodising

Aluminium is a metal which allows endless opportunities for design and creativity but which, at the same time, responds fully to modern demands in terms of environment and sustainability

The 10 key advantages of aluminium:

1. Elegant, modern, natural aspect
2. Numerous possibilities of textures, colours and surface finishes
3. Very durable over the long term 
4. Requires minimal maintenance
5. Light weight
6. High strength-to-weight ratio
7. Does not burn and is not noxious in case of fire
8. Can be totally and repeatedly recycled through simple re-melting
9. Available in many different forms to suit a diverse range of applications
10. Aluminium creates an impermeable barrier to air, water and wind

Anodising further enhances the exceptional qualities of aluminium. It also permits a strongly contemporary finish with incomparable corrosion and abrasion resistance. Unique amongst surface treatments, such as coatings, anodising is totally integrated with the metallic substrate – it is not simply a film applied to cover the surface. The result – pure aluminium – is a perfectly and repeatedly recyclable material with remarkable performance characteristics.

A totally homogeneous appearance can be guaranteed, thanks to the nature of the anodising process and the very tight quality controls on both the aluminium and the surface treatment. Colours, textures and patterns can be incorporated in the anodic film, enhancing the natural metallic appearance without affecting the total UV resistance.

The anodic layer will retain its original beauty and protection against corrosion throughout the life of the building – as proven by independent inspection of buildings of more than 30 years old.
