The adjacent information is for orientation purposes only. The subject of "materials for anodising" is very comprehensive and the number of alloys and trade names available on the market is almost unmanageable for the outsider. In case of doubt, only a detailed personal consultation can determine the material best suited to your application. Please contact us in good time before an unsuitable material is used.

The choice of an unsuitable material inevitably leads to unsolvable problems during anodising and the desired properties cannot be achieved. This applies to the alloy, but also to some extent to the quality of the material. As soon as we know your requirements or the standards to be fulfilled from the automotive, aerospace or military sectors, we recommend the optimum alloy for your components. In addition to the above-mentioned points, we also focus on material price, machinability and availability. All this is part of our daily business. Take advantage of our 25 years of expertise. That's what we are here for ...








* According to the manufacturer's information, both varieties of these cast plates must not be etched or chemical brightened. If this is necessary due to the process (e.g. after blasting) negative effects are always possible!
