The April issue of Construction Specifier features “Five Factors for Variation in and Anodize Finish,” authored by Linetec’s Tammy Schroeder.
The six-page educational article describes the anodizing process and key considerations to minimize color variation. These essential factors include:
- Aluminum alloys and their alloying elements
- Mixing aluminum alloys means mixed results
- Primary vs. secondary aluminum
- Chemistry of the anodize process
- Surface preparations
Construction Specifications Institute members received the printed magazine, and all can view the feature online, page 62.
