Type II Conventional Anodizing
TYPE II CONVENTIONAL ANODIZING

Type II sulfuric acid anodizing is an electrochemical process that causes aluminum oxide to form to a desired thickness on the surface of aluminum and aluminum alloys. Type II anodizing increases durability, corrosion resistance and aesthetic appeal, as well as makes the aluminum surface electrically non-conductive.

Conventional Anodizing Advantages:

  • Corrosion Resistant …Comparable to Stainless Steel¹Type 2 Conventional Anodizing
  • Surface Hardness …Increased Scratch Resistance¹
  • Conductivity …Non-conductive up to 1000 V¹
  • Aesthetics …Many color choices
  • Color Durability …Colors remain vibrant and fade resistant
  • More Finish Options …Excellent base for a wide range of finishing options (Clear Coat, Paint, Graphic Applications, etc.)
