Aluminium Anodised Rainscreen Cladding Finishes

Anodising is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts.

Featured Project

Sotech provided over 2000sqm of Aluminium Rainscreen for Sheffield University’s new multi-story carpark.  The scheme included Sotech Optima IPC interlocking plank in an anodized finish and Optima FC Secret Fix Rainscreen and bespoke perforated panels in a ppc finish.

Benefits

A totally homogeneous appearance can be guaranteed, thanks to the nature of the anodising process and the very tight quality controls on both the aluminium and the surface treatment.

Colours, textures and patterns can be incorporated in the anodic film, enhancing the natural metallic appearance without affecting the total UV resistance of the rainscreen cladding.

Anodising enhances the natural qualities of aluminium further; it permits a strongly contemporary finish with incomparable corrosion and abrasion resistance.

Aluminium is exceptionally recyclability, requires minimal maintenance and proven lifetime performance.
