Wieland-Wrisco aluminum is anodized using a continuous coil process, rather than batch anodized. The anodized coil, processed by the industry leader Lorin Industries, features a consistent color from start to finish and edge to edge of the aluminum. We carry a variety of colors and finishes. Most popular include clear, bronze, gold, and black – all in stock and ready to ship.
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that grows an anodic layer from the substrate thus protecting the metal from the elements. Anodized aluminum is corrosion and abrasion-resistant and does not chip, peel, or flake. In addition, UV stable colors are long lasting and are more fingerprint-resistant than other metals. Anodized aluminum is light-weight, strong and durable-sometimes even more so than metals such as stainless and copper. Anodized aluminum is aesthetically beautiful and can be used for a variety of decorative products that mimic the look of other metals.
Everything about our anodized aluminum is “green” or sustainable from the base material to the anodizing process to the finished product. It is 100% recyclable and contains zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Anodized aluminum is cost-effective and long-lasting making it a preferred choice for signage projects. It has excellent bonding characteristics, providing an ideal base for adhesion of paints, inks, substrates, and vinyl film.
