Anodized materials go through an electrochemical process that includes degreasing, electro-polishing, anodizing, and sealing which converts the aluminum surface into aluminum oxide (AL2O3). A crystal clear layer is produced in an anodizing process that can be highly decorative in architectural applications. In addition, aluminum surfaces with sufficiently thick anodized layers guarantee reflective properties with long-term reliability and can be used in the solar industry. Anodized surfaces can include specular, matte, and other finishes. The annual production capacity reaches up to 8 million square meters.
