Because of its lightness, durability and versatility, aluminum alloy is an ideal material for manufacturing a wide range of products, including handles. The natural beauty of aluminum alloys can be further enhanced by a variety of surface treatment techniques, each of which gives the handle its unique character and visual appeal.

Anodizing

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that forms a hard, corrosion-resistant oxide layer on the surface of aluminum. By controlling the current and electrolyte, a variety of colors can be achieved, from classic matte silver to striking blues and reds. Anodized handles are resistant to wear and scratches and provide additional protection against corrosion.

Powder coating

Powder coating is a dry coating process in which fine powder is not electrostatically adsorbed to the aluminum surface. The powder is then melted without high temperatures and cured to form a strong, plastic-like coating. Powder-coated handles come in a wide range of colors and textures to match any aesthetic. They are also resistant to chemicals, ultraviolet light and scratches.

Electroplating

Electroplating is an electrochemical process in which a metal layer is deposited on an aluminum surface. The most common electroplated metals are nickel, chromium and zinc, which provide additional corrosion protection and a shiny finish. Electroplated handles are ideal for demanding environments, such as kitchens or bathrooms.

Brush treatment

Brush treatment is a mechanical process that creates tiny scratches on an aluminum surface by using a rotating brush or wheel. This creates a unique texture, enhances grip, and adds visual interest. Brush handling handles are often used in tools, sports equipment, and military equipment.

PVD coating

Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is a vacuum coating technique in which metal or ceramic atoms are deposited on an aluminum surface. PVD coatings are very hard, corrosion-resistant and have excellent scratch resistance. They are commonly used in high-performance applications, such as medical devices and aerospace components.

By understanding these different surface treatment technologies, you can choose the aluminum handle that best meets your specific needs. Whether it’s durability, aesthetics or functionality, there’s a finish that can enhance your product.
