An introduction to anodizing

An introduction to anodizing

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that changes the surface of a metal or alloy and the thickness of its oxide layer. It is the most common way to increase the thickness of the oxide layer on the surface of a metal. It is a way to protect the metal surface from corrosion and wear. Anodizing is generally done on aluminum, titanium, and magnesium. In anodizing aluminum, the aluminum surface is anodized to create a layer of silicon dioxide that is about 2.5 micrometers thick. The anodizing process is often done in order to color aluminum. The aluminum parts to be anodized are first cleaned, then dipped in an acid solution, and finally in an ammonia solution. The aluminum is then immersed in an electrolyte solution containing the metal anode. The anodizing process causes the aluminum to form a coating of silicon dioxide on the surface of the metal. The electrolyte is then drained, and the aluminum is sealed from the air. The aluminum is now anodized. The aluminum is now called anodized aluminum and is used in many applications, including in the food industry.
