Aluminium anodising is an electrochemical process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal components. This process provides durable, anti-corrosive and decorative finishes.
Cosmetic finishes available:
Surtec 650 is a hexavalent chromium free trivalent used for producing a clear chem film coating on aluminium delivering excellent corrosion protection.
Passivation is the process of treating stainless steel in order to reduce the chemical reactivity of its surface. This treatment removes the free iron from the grain boundaries and surface of the metal using an acid solution.
Bead blasting is the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine bead media at a high velocity. Using top of the range machines we are able to process aluminium parts of all shapes and sizes.
Bead blasting produces an effect that is used for creating a rough, uniform and matt surface on machined parts prior to anodising.
This is a vital step in our process; buffing prepares the metal surface for all cosmetic finishes to ensure our end products are finished to the highest quality achievable.
Our team of highly skilled operatives pride themselves on the ability to take raw machined parts and process them to create the high standard of surface finishes expected from our customers.
Linishing is the process using belt sanding techniques to improve and enhance a cosmetic finish of a surface.
When aluminium is linished, it creates a distinctive finish with a brushed matt texture, enhancing the natural grain of the aluminium.
BAF have invested in the best machines and equipment available in order to continually exceed our customer expectations. Our rumbling machines and media are chosen specifically for deburring, edge-breaking and polishing various sizes, shapes and quantities of metal components. Ensuring parts have no sharp edges or excess material and are in the best possible condition for anodising treatments.
Meeting our customers' expectations and delivery requirements is paramount to our business. We achieve this through accurate inventory, maintaining a realistic production schedule, monitoring efficiencies, building strong relationships with suppliers and celebrating success.
We are confident working across a number of high pressure industries where many projects are time sensitive. As a result we are proficient in Rapid Response.
Our team of agile and skilled colleagues work tirelessly to provide a fast reactive service if and when our customers require a quick turn around.
