Anodising for architectural applications requires a very consistent finish over large surface areas with lifetime durability. This requires metal of the highest quality with guaranteed gloss ranges to ensure a consistent finish. Plasmet uses Novelis J57 grade aluminium sourced from ISO 9001 registered companies for anodising applications. Finishes are produced to comply with EN12373, BS 3987(1991) and with the European Qualanod standard.
The thickness of the coating is typically between 15 to 25 microns, however this can be thicker if specified. Anodising can be applied to a wide range of material finishes including brushed, hammered, stucco, tread plate, expanded mesh and perforated sheets. With a wide range of colours available including natural, champagne, gold, bronze, black, blue-grey, Sandalor colours and custom effects using differentiated anodising layers.
Anodised treatment gives a durable finish. For the best long-term performance anodised finish should be cleaned at maximum 6 month intervals. For harsh industrial enviroments, cleaning should be carried out every 3 months.
