Magnesium Anodize Benefits

Magnesium Anodizing differs from other surface finishing techniques like electroplating because it increases the naturally occurring oxide layer, rather than adding another layer of metal to a substrates surface. This leads to a wide range of qualities that make the process valuable to certain manufacturers. Some of the most notable qualities of Magnesium Anodize are listed below: 

  • Corrosion protection 
  • Lubricity 
  • Anti-galling 
  • Wear resistance 
  • Stable, unfading, highly replicable colors  
  • No dimensional change 
  • Environmentally friendly 
  • Cost effective 
  • Improve adhesion of dry film lubricant or paint application 
  • Customizable final aesthetic appearance across many colors 
  • And Many More!
