Anodized Aluminum Applications: Automotive Industry; Automobile /
Motorcycle Manufacturer, Hot Rod Builders, Fabricators, Customizers, Custom Colors, Corrosion Resistant
Anodized products and components are used in thousands of
applications in the automotive industry; manufacturing, motor sports,
customizing and after-market parts, including:
- Trim Parts
- Alloy Wheels / Covers
- Control Panels
- Name Plates
- Rails for RV Canopy Tubes
- Supports for RV Self Levelers
- Transmission Spools and Spindles
- Window Trimming for Trains, Busses, etc.
- High Performance Parts and Engines for a variety of race cars,
including NASCAR and CART – Wear characteristics eliminate air
corrosion - corrosion caused by flying rubber debris, due to the
- Anodized aluminum Piston Rings for Indy Cars – designed to pull heat from the piston to the cooling jacket
- Lower transom units used in high-powered Off-Shore Racing
- Fuel-handling tanks / systems for race cars running on alcohol,
methanol, ethanol, gasohol, gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, etc.
- High Pressure Fittings – for hydraulic lines, brake lines,
cooling lines, and brake calipers
- Motorcycle Front Forks, Battery Cases, Carburetor / Air Filter
Covers, Mirror Housings, Gas / Oil Tanks
This is just a small sample of products made, in whole or part, of anodized aluminum.
Throughout the automotive industry uses for anodized aluminum are
endless, limited only by the
imaginations of designers and engineers.
Anodized Aluminum Applications: Rev Up Motor Vehicles
Superior Metal Technologies offers a comprehensive range of aluminum
for the automotive industry; professional motor sports, hot rod fabricators,
motorcycle customizers, and after-market parts
- Sulfuric Anodizing
- Chromic Anodizing
- Hardcoat Anodizing (Hardcoating)
- Clear Coatings
- Color Anodizing
- Custom Anodizing
- Close Tolerance Coating
Advanced technology allows us to provide considerably smaller coating tolerances than
were available as little as 8 years ago, that further expand the possible uses of
anodized parts in automobile and motorcycle manufacturing and
The hard, corrosion-resistant coating formed with anodizing make it
the perfect choice for use in harsh environments like engine
compartments or off-roading. They will not chip or peel, and we can even provide anodic coatings in a wide range
of custom colors
and metallic tones to fit just about any need.
Anodized Aluminum Applications: Replace Costly Stainless Steel
Anodized aluminum can replace stainless steel for many motor vehicle applications,
offering design flexibility and savings due to long-lasting durability, weight
reduction (aluminum has about 1/3 the density of steel), and the
corrosion, lubricity, and environment resistant properties
unique to anodized products.
The use of aluminum components in automobile manufacturing has more
than doubled since 1976, not as a result of a major technical advance,
or design or process change, but part by part, as the benefits of
anodized aluminum are realized by more designers and engineers.
