Aluminum Surface Treatments
The natural finish and surface quality of aluminum can be used in many applications, often without any finishing. There are cases where different aluminum coatings are required for different reasons such as aesthetic improvement, different colour, better resistance to abrasion, improved reflectivity, better surface structure and improved electrical insulation. Some of these are those:
* Anodized finish
Anodizing is a very common coating on aluminum profiles. This coating is usually made for the following purposes:
o Maintaining the new look of the product
o To increase the ability of aluminum to resist corrosion
o Adding an aesthetic appearance
o Creating functional custom surfaces
o To provide electrical insulation
o Creating softer surfaces
There are different thickness layers of anodizing applied to aluminum to achieve different benefits. The thicker the anodic layer, the better the corrosion resistance.
o Surface polishing
The purpose of the QUALICOAT standard is to specify the minimum requirements that plant installations, organic coating materials, chemical conversion materials, processes and finished products must meet. The standard provides a basis for the issuance and renewal of the quality label. All requirements in the standard must be met before the quality label is issued. The specifications described for plant installations are the minimum requirements for producing good quality. Other methods can only be used if they have been previously approved by QUALICOAT. The QUALICOAT standard is designed to provide high quality coated products for use in architectural applications no matter what type of coating process is used.
QUALANOD is a quality labeling organization committed to maintaining and improving the quality of anodized aluminum materials. To determine whether the anodized coating meets the customer´s requirements, results must be measurable against technical specifications. QUALANOD defines comprehensive quality requirements on behalf of customers with anodized products and monitors the compliance of licensed factories worldwide. This way, buyers of anodized aluminum can get premium products with good quality that offer long-term value. QUALANOD has so far contributed greatly to ensuring the quality of aluminum parts used in many end markets. QUALANOD has approximately 210 licenses distributed in 39 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.
The QUALANOD standard contains requirements that must be strictly followed by licensees and prospective licensees, and some recommendations for licensees. They also provide relevant information for general licensees, test institutes, inspectors and licensees of activities carried out by QUALANOD. General licensees are allowed by QUALANOD to license their anodizing plants to use the QUALANOD quality label. General licensees also regulate testing institutes. The standard complies with ISO 7599, a designation method for decorative and protective anodizing, including architectural anodizing, unless otherwise specified, and also contains the requirements of ISO 10074, a specification for hard anodizing.
The standard consists of many clauses and several appendices. The clauses cover the general requirements applicable to any licensee and include requirements for licensing, inspections, use of the quality label, and product performance testing. Guidance and advice on products and processes are also included in the standard.
The appendix in the standard details the requirements for the following subjects.
The QUALANOD standard does not apply to the following products:
*Anodizing process in the production of lithographic plates
*Anodizing as a pre-treatment before powder coating, paint, inorganic coating or adhesive application
*Anodizing application used in the production of combined coating
