Lorin Industries, Inc., has released a new video resource for architects, product designers, and engineers highlighting the superior physical characteristics and cost efficiency of coil anodised aluminium versus painted aluminium.

“Lorin Industries, Inc. Anodising vs. Paint - Complete Compilation” busts nine myths about coil anodising and is available now on Lorin Industries’ YouTube Channel.

The video provides information on the process of coil anodising and the qualities of coil anodised aluminium—including durability and colour consistency. Viewers may be surprised to learn of the low lifetime cost of coil anodised products and the material’s exceptional performance in coastal conditions. Viewers will also discover just how small the environmental footprint is of coil anodised aluminium production and use.

Coil anodising is not like a layer of paint; instead, it is an electro-chemical process that grows the aluminium oxide layer from the base aluminium, bonding it to the aluminium at the molecular level. Highly durable aluminium oxide is in the same family of gemstones as sapphire, second only to diamond in hardness. Therefore, unlike painted or coated products, Lorin Anodised Aluminium will not chip, flake or peel.
