As the use of new alloys grows, the need to protect those materials from oxidation by using the correct type and thickness of coating becomes increasingly important.

Nearly all metal surfaces are coated using a process called anodization to increase resistance to corrosion, improve bonding to other surfaces or improve hardness. As the use of new alloys grows, the need to protect those materials from oxidation by using the correct type and thickness of coating becomes increasingly important.
