Anodized Aluminum Sheet Metal:
Anodized aluminum sheet metal is product that consists of aluminum sheeting exposed to an electrolytic process that imparts a tough, protective finish on its surface. The benefit of the anodizing process is that it is an intrinsic part of the metal surface, thus yielding outstanding durability and strength. The longer the aluminum sheet metal is in the anodizing tank, the darker the color of the metal. Therefore anodized finishes are commonly specified as color ranges due to the chemistry & timing of the anodizing process. Typically the best anodized finishes come from 5005 AQ (Anodizing Quality) metal alloys. Trying to anodized other alloys typically yields unacceptable results.
There are 2 types of anodizing processes for anodized aluminum sheet metal:
STOCK ANODIZED ALUMINUM SHEET METAL
Painted Kynar500® / Hylar 5000 Aluminum Sheet Metal
Painted fluoropolymer PVDF coatings typically carry warranties of 20 or more years against chalking or fading. These sheets have a removable PVC film to protect finished surface, and can be cut and bent without cracking or scratching the surface. Sheets are finished on one side.
Available color choice options from the following manufacturers: (Please note due to monitor settings, colors may not be an accurate representation of actual color. Actual color charts or color chips should be approved prior to order.)
