Welcome to Archway Anodize

The anodizing of aluminum allows it to be used in many applications for which it might not otherwise be suitable. The anodize process forms an oxide film, which grows from the base metal. The film, when properly applied, gives the aluminum a hard, corrosion-and-abrasion-resistant coating with excellent wear properties.

Archway Anodize offers TYII and TYIII (hardcoat) anodizing in a clear, black, or gold color. More colors will be available soon.

Archway Anodize also provides Conversion Coating (alodine) for aluminum and Passivation for stainless steel.

Archway Anodize provides process certifications specifically for:

  • MIL-A-8625 TYII and TYIII (hardcoat) (Sulfuric Acid Anodizing class 1 and 2)
  • QQ-P-35 (Passivation)
  • MIL-C-5541 (Conversion Coat/Alodine)
