South Georgia Anodizing

Ready To Serve Your Metal Finishing Needs

South Georgia Anodizing may be a new player in the field, but we bring years of experience with a long history in the metal business.  For years, we have extruded aluminum for applications world wide.  As our business grew, so did our need to provide top quality anodizing services to our extrusion customers.  From our phenomenal growth, South Georgia Anodizing was born.

Combining science with nature to create one of the world's best metal finishes.

South Georgia Anodizing operates in a brand new , modern facility in Douglas, Georgia.  South Georgia Anodizing offers custom anodization.  Anodizing is the process of electromagnetically controlling, accelerating and enhancing oxidation of an aluminum substrate. The anodizing process, because it is an integral part of the substrate, produces an oxide film that is uniform, hard and protects the rest of the aluminum substrate from deterioration – providing excellent wear and abrasion resistance with minimal maintenance in most environments.

The coating produced is extremely durable, and the hardness of the surface is comparable to a sapphire—the second hardest substance on earth. This characteristic makes anodize an excellent choice for use in high-traffic areas where resistance properties are important.

Anodized aluminum resists the ravages of time, temperature, corrosion, humidity and warping, adding to it’s long life cycle. Anodized aluminum is an inert material that is not combustible, 100% recyclable and poses no health risks.

Electrolytic Two-Step Anodizing Process

Two Step Process Guarantees Quality

The typical anodizing employed in the architectural industry is called two-step electrolytic.” The actual anodizing and coloring of the aluminum occur in separate steps of the process. The anodizing step takes place in a tank that contains a solution of sulfuric acid and water. The tank is charged with electrical current, and aluminum oxide is formed on the surface of the aluminum. After anodizing is complete, the parts can be immersed in an optional coloring tank, to achieve bronze or black tones instead of the standard clear or silver finish. In the coloring tank, the anodized aluminum is immersed in a bath containing an inorganic metal such as tin, cobalt or nickel, which are deposited in the anodic pores by means of electrolytic current. The amount of time the part is immersed will determine the color achieved. Darker colors are created by extending the immersion time and increasing metal deposition. The colors typically seen on architectural products range from champagne to dark bronze and black.
