Hardcoat anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts a metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. In addition to aluminum, other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, can be anodized too.
Hardcoat anodizing is done for multiple reasons as well. Besides increasing corrosion resistance, it also increases surface hardness, allows coloring and improves lubrication or adhesion.
When hardcoat anodizing is performed, it creates a layer that is completely integrated into the substance. This means that it cannot chip or peel, unlike painting. Anodized aluminum provides a highly porous structure that allows for post color dyeing processes as well as post sealing.
