Most anodized products have an extremely long life span and offer significant economic advantages through maintenance and operating savings
Anodizing is a reacted finish that is integrated with the underlying aluminum for total bonding and unmatched adhesion.
Exterior anodic coatings provide good stability to ultraviolet rays, do not chip or peel and are easily repeatable.
For over 30 years, Progressive Anodizers Inc. has met and exceeded the demanding finishing requirements of the military, medical, display, communication, appliance, and automotive industries.
Progressive focuses it’s efforts and experience on two primary forms of finishing: Anodizing and Chromate Conversion. Each of these processes are highly repeatable and are considered industry standards.
The beautiful, innovative, vibrant finishes created by our skilled production staff reflects the pride each person takes in completing every order.
Through rigorous monitoring of our processes, we consistently create finishes that are black, bronze, champagne, stainless steel, clear, grey, gold, green, blue. and red.
Environmental compliance is a priority for Progressive Anodizers Inc., achieved through legislated reporting to the following regulatory bodies: National Pollutant Release Inventory – Canada’s legislated, publicly accessible inventory of pollutant releases (to air, water and land), disposals and transfers for recycling (Environment Canada); Ontario Regulation 127/01 – Environmental Protection Act; and HWIN (MOE) and ChemTRAC.

The purpose of anodizing is to form a layer of aluminum oxide that will protect the aluminum beneath it. The aluminum oxide layer has much higher corrosion and abrasion resistance than aluminum.
There are some types of anodizing that produce a porous oxide layer that can be coloured with organic dyes or metallic pigments giving the aluminum a decorative and protective finish.
Anodizing is an environmentally safe electrochemical process that converts the aluminum metal surface into a porous aluminum oxide, ultimately creating an end product whose finish is more durable and weather-resistant.
This beneficial result combined with the array of aesthetically pleasing colour finishes opens up endless application possibilities for companies who anodize products and components in commercial, industrial, and consumer applications, even jewelry and artwork.
