What is anodising?
Anodising is a chemical process that occurs on a porous surface to make printing possible, and provides the metal surface with a decorative, durable, anodic oxide finish.
During the process, the anodising is interrupted and a special anodising ink is applied via screen printing onto the unsealed aluminium surface, with the ink being absorbed into the open pores of the anodised layer. The process is finished (sealed) with a very thin oxide layer created, covering the printed surface and protecting it from outside influences. This produces printed signs and plates that are wipe and scratch resistant and resistant to oils and diluting agents.
We have the skills and technology in-house to manufacture extra durable anodised aluminium labels, nameplates and signs which will last many years, even under extreme conditions and continuous use.
“Anodising is a simple, fast, yet incredibly effective process that gives a high level of protection to your product ensuring long life. It is considered environmentally safe, producing few, if any, harmful effects on land, air, or water.“
