Aluminium anodization

Metal parts can be colored in the strangest ways. When we speak about aluminium, Apple is able to produce extraordinary hues on aluminium covers. As a matter of fact, they are using an anodization process which oxydizes the surface of the metal to create small pores to receive color pigmentation which will become nearly impossible to remove.

This video from Bill Hammack explains it all in details.

  1. Shane, I love your patience with me. Unfortunately, several personal issues are holding me and I can’t really update the web site as much as I’d like.

    However, I promise to come back to it some time in 2013.

  2. Good to know you haven’t dropped the site. Sorry to hear things holding you back. I wish you good luck in the new year, and will wait to see new posts from you.
