Anodizing refers to the electrochemical process that changes the surface of the metal into a corrosion-resistant, durable, and aesthetically pleasing anodic-oxide finish. This is not a process that happens before other finishing – an anodized material’s surface is fully integrated into the aluminum substrate and cannot be chipped off or removed.
