The all-rounder: effective and reliable

Coa­ting pro­ces­ses


ELOX is an aluminium oxi­de coa­ting pro­du­ced by the stan­dard anodising pro­cess.

It pro­tects aluminium com­po­nent from the effects of wea­ther and pro­vi­des basic pro­tec­tion against mecha­ni­cal stress.

Coat thic­k­ness and com­po­si­ti­on
ELOX is sui­ta­ble for coat thic­k­nes­ses ran­ging from 5 to 25 µm, depen­ding on the aluminium alloy used. The recom­men­ded coat thic­k­ness is 10 µm. Two thirds of it ‘grows’ into the base mate­ri­al, resul­ting in an appli­ca­ti­on of about 3 µm.

Tole­rance ran­ge
The tole­rance ran­ge of an ELOX coat is ± 3 µm depen­ding on the mate­ri­al used and the sel­ec­ted coat thic­k­ness.

Intrin­sic colour
The ELOX coat is basi­cal­ly trans­pa­rent, but hig­her allo­yed aluminium pro­du­ces vary­ing shades of grey.

ELOX can also be dyed black (accor­ding to VSA*210 / cor­re­sponds appro­xi­m­ate­ly to RAL9001).
