Anodised aluminum sheets

Anodised aluminum sheet is to place the aluminum sheet in corresponding electrolyte (such as sulfuric acid, chromic acid, oxalic acid, etc.) as the anode for electrolysis under specific conditions with externally applied current. The aluminum sheet of the anode is oxidized and has an aluminum oxide film formed on the surface; the film is 5-20μm thick, and a hard anodic oxidation film can be up to 60-200μm thick. After anodization, the aluminum sheet achieves greater hardness, better abrasive resistance (up to 250-500 kg/mm2), and good resistance to heat; the hard anodic oxidation film also features a melting point of up to 2320 K, excellent insulativity, high breakdown voltage (up to 2000V), and enhanced resistance to corrosion (it may stand salt spray under ω=0.03NaCl for thousands of hours without being corroded). Additionally, the oxide film is distributed with numerous pores that can absorb various lubricants, thus making the anodised aluminum sheet suitable for manufacturing engine cylinder or other wear-resistant parts; the strong absorbability of the film can also be well utilized to form various bright colors.

Anodization process of aluminum sheets

  • General principle of aluminum sheet anodization generating aluminum oxide film
  • Selection of electrolyte for anodization of aluminum sheets
  • Types of anodization of aluminum sheet
  • Structure and properties of the oxide film formed during aluminum sheet anodization

Advantages of the anodised aluminum sheet

  • (1) Good processability: the anodised aluminum sheet is strongly decorative, featuring moderate hardness and easy bending and shaping; it can be processed by continuous pressing at high speeds, and directly made into products without requiring complex surface treatment, thus having greatly reduced the production period and the production cost of products.
  • (2) Good weatherability: an anodised aluminum sheet with oxide film of standard thickness (3μm) stands colorfast for a long time when it is used indoors, with no corrosion, oxidation or rusting; a thickened anodised aluminum sheet (thickness of 10μm) can be used outdoors with colorfastness under long-time exposure to sunlight.
  • (3) Prominent metallic features: anodised aluminum sheets may have their hardness on a par with gems and are well resistant to scratches; they have no paint coating on the surface and thus have retained the metallic gloss of aluminum sheets, protruding the modern metallic features and promoting the class and added value of the products.
  • (4) Good resistance to fire: as the anodised aluminum sheet is purely made of metal without any paint or chemical substance, it neither combusts at a temperature as high as 600 degrees, nor generates any poisonous gas, and thus satisfies the requirements for environmental protection.
  • (5) Good resistance to dirt: the anodised aluminum sheet retains no finger print, and thus no stains will be left; it can also be easily cleaned, without producing any corroded spot.
  • (6) Wide applicability: the anodised aluminum sheet is widely used, and applicable to metal aluminum ceiling, curtain wall plate, aluminum composite panel, fireproof board, honeycomb aluminum panel, single aluminum sheet, electric appliance panel, cabinet panel, furniture panel, etc.


The anodised aluminum sheets are widely used in such fields as mechanical parts, airplane and automobile parts, precise instruments, wireless electrical appliances, building decorations, mechanical housing, illumination lamps, electronic consumables, art wares, household appliances, indoor decorations, sign boards, furniture automobile decorations, etc.

Basic processing procedures of surface treatment are as follows:

Procedures for anodization of aluminum sheets: racking – degreasing – rinsing – alkaline corrosion – rinsing – neutralizing – rinsing - anodizing – rinsing – pore sealing – rinsing – off rack – testing – packing.
Among the procedures, degreasing, alkaline corrosion, neutralizing, anodizing and pore sealing are key to ensure the oxidation quality.

Aluminum sheets suitable for polishing

1. Pure aluminum sheet

The common codes of pure aluminum sheet series are 1050, 1070 and 1085. Among all the aluminum sheet series, the pure aluminum sheet series contains the most aluminum, with the purity above 99.00%. As the pure aluminum sheet contains no other elements, it requires a relatively simple production process, and with a comparatively cheap price, it is the most commonly used series in the current conventional industries.

2. Alloy aluminum sheet

Alloy aluminum 5xxx series, represented by the aluminum sheet 5005 and 5657 series, are commonly used alloy aluminum series. The alloy aluminum series, mainly containing magnesium, has a content of magnesium ranging from 3-5%, and thus it can also be called aluminum-magnesium alloy. The series features low density, high tensile strength and great elongation. With the same area, the aluminum-magnesium alloy weighs less than other series. Therefore, they are commonly used in aviation, such as the oil tank of airplanes. They are also widely used in normal industries. The processing technique is continuous casting and rolling. As they belong to the hot-rolled aluminum sheet series, deep oxidization processing can be performed. In China aluminum sheet 5xxx series are among the mature series, and can be well Bright.
