FAQ:  Will Anodizing Cause Loss of Design Detail?

Will Anodizing Cause Loss of Design Detail?: Ornamental Metal Industry, Intricate Designs. Anodic Coatings, Complex / Delicate Scrollwork, Etching Design

 

In the ornamental metal industry, where projects sometimes include intricate designs, there is sometimes a concern that detail will be lost with a protective or decorative coating application. Superior Metal Technologies has the solution to address your concern.

Generally, thin anodic coatings, with thicknesses as small as .05/mil,  will cause no discernable loss of detail to an etched design. You might lose a little detail if you are talking about something with complex and/or delicate scrollwork.

Please contact one of our highly experienced anodizing specialists if you have any concerns about detail loss. Superior has the expertise to create beautiful anodized coating while maintaining the integrity of an intricate design. We can help make your vision a reality.
