Sanford Process is at the forefront of patented innovation in anodizing aluminum; with the first low voltage hard aluminum anodizing system and more recently with micro-crystalline anodizing. Sanford Process licenses developed technologies and provides contract development work on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis. We deliver validated process and product design solutions with detailed instructions, and can also arrange complete part processing through our sister company, DCHN LLC.
Sanford Process provides solutions for often complex and apparently conflicting aluminum finishing requirements:
- High chemical resistance in a coating that is inherently soluble by strong chemistries
- Hard surfaces that remain flexible on non-rigid substrates
- Permanent printing in metal, with vivid and bright colors that meet MIL-A-8625 Type III requirements
In each of these cases, Sanford Process developed aluminum finishing and hardcoating process solutions that fundamentally enhanced coating performance and expanded the application space for anodic aluminum coatings.
