Anodizing Titanium

Titanium Anodize Services for Advanced Manufacturers

Titanium Anodizing is an electrolytic finishing process in which an oxide (anodic) layer is chemically built on the surface of the titanium metal part.

An important process for several industries, Titanium Anodize is typically used as a lubricating and anti-galling coating for elevated temperature forming, as an isolating film for increased resistance to galvanic corrosion to provide improved wear resistance, and as a pretreatment for the application of solid film lubricants. Titanium Anodized parts also are bio-compatible, making possible many modern and leading edge dental and medical devices and implants.
