anodised cladding

The Benefits of Anodising

Anodised aluminium is an increasingly popular finish choice for rainscreen cladding, and with such an extensive range of benefits to using it, it isn’t difficult to see why.

Aluminium is exceptionally recyclable, has minimal maintenance and proven lifetime performance, and successfully responds to the need for environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions.

One of the biggest advantages of using an anodised finish is the amount of additional strength that it gives aluminium panels; because anodising is a surface treatment that integrates completely with the metal’s surface, rather than just coating it, it produces a pure aluminium material that is not only resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and is remarkably strong, but that is exceptionally recyclable and therefore more sustainable and eco-friendly.

Anodising doesn’t just enhance a building’s appearance by protecting it against the elements; the strict quality controls involved in the anodising process help to guarantee a homogenous surface, which allows for an almost limitless range of colours, textures, patterns and designs to be incorporated into the anodic layer and creating a visual spectacle, without affecting the resistance of the material.

As sustainability and innovation move to the forefront of architectural design, it is more important than ever that your chosen finish provides benefits related to style as well as substance.

A design life guarantee is also available for anodising.
