Aluminum anodizing is a process that involves the formation of a protective layer on the surface of the metal, which enhances its corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and appearance. Alexandria Metal Finishers offers a range of aluminum anodizing services, including Type I, Type II, and Type III anodizing, as well as hardcoat anodizing.

The company's Type I anodizing process, also known as chromic acid anodizing, is a thin film anodizing process that provides excellent corrosion protection and electrical conductivity. Type II anodizing, also known as sulfuric acid anodizing, is a thicker film anodizing process that provides improved wear resistance and coloring capabilities. Type III anodizing, also known as hardcoat anodizing, is a thicker film anodizing process that provides exceptional wear resistance and durability.

In addition to its anodizing services, Alexandria Metal Finishers also offers a range of secondary services, including precision masking, bead blasting, and chemical cleaning. The company's precision masking capabilities allow for the selective anodizing of specific areas on the metal surface, while its bead blasting and chemical cleaning services help to prepare the surface for anodizing.
