Anodized Aluminum Colors


The type 2 anodizing colors process for aluminum creates unique parts, components, or prototypes that provide excellent mechanical properties and aesthetic qualities that enhance visual appeal. With a wide range of aluminum anodizing colors to choose from, anodized dye transforms ordinary looking parts into visual masterpieces. Depending on the type of coating that is applied, type 2 aluminum anodizing dye can reflect light and absorb light, providing a custom hue that is as unique as the component. 

Arrow Cryogenics provides world-class type 2 anodized aluminum dyeing services. Through our direct aluminum anodizing colors processes we can provide manufactured aluminum parts, components, and prototypes in a wide range of colors.

Anodized Aluminum Colors Dyeing Process 

During the type II anodizing process a porous anodic coating is formed when the aluminum part is processed in a sulfuric bath. The newly formed pores create a space for the dye to be absorbed into the surface of the aluminum. 

The anodized coloration process works through direct pigment injection into the empty pores of the part. Once the colored pigment reaches the surface, it’s sealed off to preserve the selected color. The aluminum anodizing colors process creates a visual effect, allowing for optimal visual appearance.
