Because of its thick, durable nature, hard anodising is an excellent protective coating for components used in harsh conditions, such as electric charges, high fire danger, moisture and salt spray. Hard anodising is becoming a popular coating in a wide range of industries seeking an effective heat, corrosion and abrasion resistant finish.
Because of their excellent longevity, electrical insulation characteristics, dry lubrication and wear resistance, hard anodising works well on aircraft parts.
Hard anodised parts are useful in high-speed machine parts such as printing presses and conveyors, due to their abrasion resistance.
As hard anodising is heat resistant up to high temperatures, hard anodised aluminium is a good option for metal fire fighting components.
Due to its exceptional wear and corrosion resistance and ability to stand up to extreme conditions, hard anodising ensures reliability and consistency in military equipment.
As it is thicker, harder and more wear resistant than other coatings (including standard anodising), hard anodising makes an excellent protective coating for engineering parts undergoing tougher conditions and harder work. It is especially useful for electrical engineering applications due to its electrical insulation qualities.
