Chromic Acid Anodising

DETAILS Anodising – Chromic Acid Anodising Chromic Acid anodising provides a thin layer that is typically 1–2µm. It is typically used for its anti-corrosion properties and as a pre-treatment for paint systems. Chromic acid anodising excels compared to other anodising techniques when the fatigue strength of the aluminium substrate needs to be maintained. Poeton offer [...]

Hard Anodising

DETAILS Anodising – Hard Anodising Hard anodising is typically 25 to 50µm thick and used for providing wear resistance where surface contact loads are light, for instance in the low stress abrasive wear caused by food or pharmaceutical products. It is also be used for corrosion protection and thermal or electrical insulation. Hard anodising can [...]

Sulphuric Acid anodising

DETAILS Anodising – Sulphuric Acid Anodising Sulphuric acid anodising is typically 10 – 15µm thick. It is used for its anti-corrosion properties, when additional durability is required or when colouring by dying is required. Sulphuric anodising leaves a clear silver coloured finish but we are able to offer a range of colour dyes giving the [...]

Tartaric Sulphuric Acid Anodising

DETAILS Anodising – Tartaric Sulphuric Acid Anodising Tartaric Sulphuric Acid anodising (TSA) is typically 5 – 7µm thick. It is typically used as a pre-treatment to aerospace and defence paint systems and as a key alternative to Chromic acid anodising, as tartaric sulphuric acid anodising conforms with the latest REACH regulations. In comparison to chromic [...]

Titanium Anodising

DETAILS Anodising – Titanium Anodising Titanium anodising is a process of converting the thin surface layer of titanium into titanium dioxide. An oxidisation process happens naturally with titanium, which leads to its excellent anti-corrosion properties. However, when anodised this oxidation is far thicker and more robust. The interesting feature with Titanium anodising is that the [...]
