Hard Anodizing is typically used on drives for the food and chemical processing industries. The coating provides an electrochemical aluminum oxide coating on the outer surface of components providing a hard, corrosive-resistant surface suitable for harsh environments and caustic washdown environments.
This process is often used in military applications where components need additional corrosion and wear protection, and need to be painted.
This coating is often used in the food processing and packaging industry where a quality appearance and durability are needed.
