As a USGBC member, Linetec supports green building through our eco-friendly finishing applications, ongoing research and environmentally friendly business practices and facilities.

Linetec has improved its anodize process to a more environmentally-friendly finish. In addition to its green attributes, this eco-friendly anodize creates an aesthetically appealing, “frostier” matte finish that helps hide small defects, such as die lines, flow lines, minor corrosion and scratches, that may occur on the aluminum surface of architectural products.

Although neither traditional nor eco-friendly anodize removes irregularities in the aluminum, eco-friendly anodize does a better job of concealing them. This gives the material a better aesthetic finish on both primary aluminum and secondary (recycled) billet.

Secondary billet contributes to the green features for building projects seeking certification under the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™. With the use of eco-friendly anodize, secondary billet can now be utilized to its full potential and warranted with confidence that the finish will perform as intended

Unlike paint and powder coat finishes, anodizing highlights aluminum’s metallic appearance. Because it is an integral part of the substrate, the anodic coating results in a hard, durable substance providing excellent wear and abrasion resistance with minimal maintenance.

Linetec is fully compliant with all environmental regulations. You can verify Linetec’s or any other company’s compliance records on the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA’s ECHO) website.
