What is Anodizing?

Anodizing is a corosion and scratch resistent treetment for aluminum that can be customized with different colors, patterns, images, etc.

Unlike coatings like paint, powdercoat, and cerakote, anodizing is bonded to the aluminum through a specific chemical reaction so it will never peel, flake, or rub off.

What can be anodized?

Anodizing can be done to anything aluminum or titanium. However, the processes for each material is very different. The colors and effects possible are also different.

At Arc Anodizing we specialize in aluminum graphic anodizing.

6061 aircraft grade aluminum is your typical gold standard aluminum alloy blend. Aluminum also comes in other 6000 series alloys as well as 7000 series and 200 series, all of which can be anodized.

Cast aluminum can also be anodized however the grain structure of the aluminum can be very unpredicatable after the forging process and these defects can appear in the final product even with the best surface preperation. Therefore, we highly recommend that anything you anodize be of high grade billet machines aluminum.

What is the lasering service?

With our brand Arc Anodizing, we try to add more and more value to our customers.

We have aquired several CO2 lasering machines to use in conjunction with our anodzing line to offer more customization options. Our lasers have large work areas to accomidate big parts as well as rotary mounts for round objects.

In the past if you wanted a simple white logo or markings added to you product you would need to have it completly reanodized and the markings put into anodizing. Now we can either take you currently anodized products and add the appropiate marking, saving you money. Or add lasering along with out custom anodizing service.

If you are purchasing an Arc Direct product you item is ready to ship and will be processed immediately.
