THE “ETCH” OF THE FUTURE AVAILABLE NOW

90% REDUCTION OF METAL DISSOLUTION 90% REDUCTION OF CAUSTIC SODA CONSUMPTION 90% REDUCTION OF SLUDGE More and more the aluminium anodizing industry is required to reply to requirements coming from a multi-faceted combination of factors. The use of caustic soda for etching of profiles, while established since a very long time, is increasingly under pressure due to environmental and cost implications. The search for an alternative to caustic etch is therefore seen as a natural technological evolution. The research has brought to a new type of aluminium surface etch named BE 10 (Beauty Etch...

A NEW “SUPER-SEAL” RESISTANCE ALSO TO ALKALI (PASSES ALSO SEVERE AUTOMOTIVE TESTS)

A NEW “SUPER-SEAL” RESISTANCE ALSO TO ALKALI (PASSES ALSO SEVERE AUTOMOTIVE TESTS)

The latest development in terms of resistance to alkali aggression of the aluminium anodic oxide layer has been awaited since long by many industries, such as automotive, electronics, medical, aerospace. There are in fact several requests to provide the anodic oxide with a high resistance to alkalis in order to use anodized aluminium in fields in which the use of the same would not have been possible until today. The new requirements concern the resistance to alkaline environments of the anodic oxide, to be obtained with an ecological and user-friendly product. Although the anodic oxide is...
