Anodized Aluminum Sheets

Enjoy the beauty of Wrisco’s Anodized Aluminum Sheet and Coil on your next project. Coil Anodizing is an electrochemical process, not an applied coating. The surface of the aluminum is converted to an aluminum oxide as a result of reactions occurring in an acid solution and electricity. The end result is a technical wonder that provides many inherent benefits. Wrisco distributes anodized sheet products produced from the coil by the industry leader Lorin Industries. Continuous coil anodizing, without a doubt, yields unmatched quality, utility, consistency, and affordability.

Clear Anodized, Bronze Anodized and Gold Anodized finishes are what most people think of first when considering aluminum. Wrisco delivers those finishes in the most beautiful variations available – bright, matte, clear, brush stroked and more. Anodized aluminum can accurately present the same classic appearances of other popular metals, including copper, brass, bronze and stainless steel, however, without the weight, expense and other disadvantages of those materials. Wrisco’s partnership with Lorin Industries goes even beyond that, with its ability to develop an artist’s palette of custom colors, either to match a desired shade or create a new one.

Cost and Production Efficiencies

  • Anodized aluminum arrives clean and ready for immediate fabrication.
  • Anodized aluminum weighs approximately 60% less than stainless, brass and copper – more parts per pound.
  • The anodic layer is three times harder than the aluminum itself and provides a natural abrasion resistance not found in copper, brass and stainless steel.  This means less handling damage during shipping and installation and better durability down the line.

Beauty and Versatility

  • Anodized aluminum can be fabricated in a brake, roll-formed, stamped, laser engraved, laminated, perforated, welded, embossed and silk screened.
  • Anodized aluminum can be processed to any color in the visible light spectrum and match any custom need.
  • The coil anodizing process ensures consistent color from start to finish and edge to edge of the aluminum coil.
  • The translucent oxide layer accentuates the rich metallic appearance of the aluminum and does not cover it up like paint. The aluminum oxide layer will not chip, flake or peel like paint,  patina like copper, rust like steel or weather like brass.

Sustainability and the Environment

  • Aluminum is the most abundant element in the earth’s crust and is 100% recyclable.
  • Anodized aluminum and the anodizing process do not contain any volatile organic compounds.
  • The Cool Roof Alternative – Lorin ClearMatt® anodized aluminum has a higher solar reflectance index (SRI) value than white painted aluminum.
