What is anodizing?
Anodizing is a corrosion and scratch resistant treatment for aluminum that can be customized with different colors, patterns, images, etc.
Unlike coatings such as paint, powder coat, and cerakote, anodizing is bonded to the aluminum through a specific chemical reaction so it will never peel, flake, or rub off.
What can be anodized?
Anodizing can be done to anything aluminum or titanium. However, the processes for each material are very different. The colors and effects possible are also different.
At ARC Anodizing we specialize in aluminum graphic anodizing.
6061 aircraft grade aluminum is your typical gold standard aluminum alloy blend. Aluminum also comes in other 6000 series alloys as well as 7000 series and 2000 series, all of which can be anodized. For a seamless anodizing job, it is much easier to have all matching aluminum alloy since each alloy blend colors differently.
Cast aluminum can also be anodized however the grain structure of the aluminum can be very unpredictable after the forging process and these defects can appear in the final product even with the best surface preparation. Therefore, we highly recommend that anything you anodize be of high grade billet machined aluminum.
How long does it take?
For anodizing, our turn around times vary based on current work volume and difficulty of the job. You can expect at least a 3-5 weeks for your items to be inventoried, prepped, colored and cleaned.

Sponge: Sponge designs look as if you took a wet sponge and dabbed the color onto the gun.

If you are sending in parts from different manufacturers, the colors on the different parts will not match exactly. This is due to companies using different types of aluminum in their manufacturing. We do not warranty or re do any differences in colors.
