Here at AMF we have multiple anodize lines, (2) producing Type II anodizing (Sulfuric Acid) with (1) of our lines being dedicated to commercial production while the other is for parts that require cosmetic finishing only. We keep five standard colors on line with custom colors available upon request. Our largest tank size is 8ft. x 4ft. x 4 ft.
Clear, black, blue, gold, orange, purple, red, green and others upon request.

Anodizing is the process of electrochemically controlling, accelerating and enhancing oxidation of an aluminum surface. The anodizing process, because it is an integral part of the substrate, produces an oxide film that is uniform, hard and protects the rest of the aluminum substrate from deterioration - providing excellent wear and abrasion resistance with minimal maintenance in most environments. The coating produced is extremely durable, and the hardness of the surface is comparable to a sapphire, known as a fact to be the second hardest substance on earth. Anodized aluminum resists the ravages of time, temperature, corrosion, humidity and warping, adding to it's long life cycle and as well provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than bare metal. Anodized aluminum is an inert material that is not combustible, 100% recyclable and poses no health risks. Class 1 and Class 2 coatings should not be confused with Type I, Type II, and/or Type III anodic coatings as described in the authoritative anodizing standard, MIL-A-8625. Type I anodize refers to Chromic Acid anodizing. Type II is normal CLEAR sulfuric acid anodizing. With Type III being HARDCOAT using sulfuric acid or mixed chemistry electrolytes.
