Will blue anodized aluminium make your project look better? Then you’re at the right place at Huawei. We’re experts in anodizing and offer a lot of different colour possibilities. At Huawei Here we can anodize, colour, brush, polish and grind aluminium in no time. For colouring anodized aluminium, for example blue, we use a electrochemical process to make the top layer into an decorative, wear-resistant, sustainable and corrosion-resistant oxide layer. To give the anodized aluminium the blue colour Huawei uses metal salts. They are deposited in the pores and modified electrochemically. Blue anodized aluminium is 100% UV resistant and will remain beautiful for a long time.Anodizing is a process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. It increases corrosion and wear resistance, and during the process the anodized aluminum surface can be dyed into many different colors.

What Is Hard Coat Anodizing?Hard coat anodizing is a method of anodizing aluminum. Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts surface aluminum to aluminum-oxide. Anodizing improves the metals resistance to corrosion, wear and increases durability. Hard coat anodizing further enhances these properties.Hard Coat AnodizingAnodizing is designated as Type I or Type II. Hardcoat anodizing is referred to as Type III anodizing.The Hard Coat ProcessHard anodizing or hard coating uses a sulfuric acid electrolyte to convert the aluminum surface to aluminum oxide. The sulfuric acid bath is approximately 32 degrees F, with a current density of 23 to 37 amps. The time to hard coat is from approximately 20 minutes to 2 hours. The alloy and coating thickness determines the amount of time.AlloysAluminum alloys will accept anodizing. Alloys higher in aluminum with less copper and silicone will accept the hard coat process better. The type of alloy changes the rate the coating builds up.ColorH…
