Anodizing: Clear, black, and a rainbow of colored dyes.

Anodizing is an electro-chemical process that uniformly converts an aluminum surface to an aluminum oxide film.  Anodizing provides corrosion and abrasion resistance, increases paint adhesion, and improves the cosmetic appearance.  Anodizing aluminum also increases wear resistance, provides electrical insulation, and may be dyed various colors for cosmetic purposes.  Please note that dye does not provide any additional corrosion or abrasion protection.
