Anodizing is a metal finishing process that enhances the quality of the metal, protects it from environmental damage and finally makes it aesthetically pleasing. Anodizing imparts color stability and durability, particularly for aluminum. The extensive positive attributes achieved in addition to the ease of operations makes the anodizing markets highly attractive. Film thickness of  5 and 25 microns can be achieved by anodizing which can be customized according to industry requirements. Choosing the right process for the right application is very important for anodizing to attain durability of the substrate. While many metals can be treated with anodizing, aluminum and magnesium are the most significant.

This research service titled, "Emerging Opportunities for Anodizing Processes" captures the recent trends in the field of anodizing processes for various industries with emphasis on the emerging technology trends and developments.
