External Aluminum finishes
September 26, 2012
Q. Hey I was just wanting some information on external finishes for aluminium. My company was wanting to produce pool fencing (around a pool which is a highly corrosive area). We were wanting to use aluminum for some of the components. We are wanting to offer an anodised, polished and brushed finish for the fencing. My question is how these finished would go outside in the elements especially in a highly corrosive area around a pool. Would the finishes fade? What means of protection would you suggest to keep the aluminum parts looking their best?Nick Felstead
