We have the largest dimensional range in the world, accepting coils with a gauge range from 0.5 mm to of up to 3.5 mm and widths of up to 2 000 mm.

We have a range of anodic film thicknesses from 1 micron up to 25 microns to suit all types of end use.

We have an unrivalled range of colours, textures and gloss levels.

Coil has over 45 years’ experience, we have an extensive range of architectural and product references throughout the world.

Aloxide Continuous Coil Anodising

Aloxide Vertical Anodising

In 2018, we installed a next generation, automated vertical anodising line.

Using the same production parameters as for our continuous anodising process, we are able to produce smaller volumes of anodised aluminium in sheet form with a flexible anodic film. This hybrid film exceptionally permits transformation after anodising. This anodic film does not suffer from surface erosion, like conventional batch anodising.

This process also permits the line to operate with better control than conventional batch anodising, ensuring a better, more consistent finish.

This new vertical anodising process has also permitted us to extend our product offering from coil and sheet products to pre-manufactured panels and sections as well as more complex architectural forms.

Public Works

Highway sound barriers are increasingly used to protect from sound pollution in cities worldwide. Unfortunately, sound barriers also provide a perfect canvas for graffiti artists. Aloxide provides a durable decorative finish permitting the easy removal of graffiti.

Welded tubes

Aluminium welded tubes are light but strong. They are used in a whole range of applications from domestic to industrial.

Automotive

The automotive industry has been one of the most recent converts to aluminium for reasons of weight reduction and recyclability. Applications for Aloxide include:

  • Exterior/interior automotive trim
  • Technical applications

Consumer goods

As demonstrated by manufacturers of laptops, mobile phones and tablets, anodised aluminium has become the symbol of clean, modern lightweight design with the added advantage of 100% recyclability at the end of its design life.

Aloxide can be used extensively, including for:

  • Designer furniture
  • Luxury luggage
  • Kitchens
  • DIY applications
  • Electronic goods
  • White goods
  • Decorative applications
  • Letterboxes

Medical

Aloxide can be used in equipment employed in hospitals and clinics because of its very smooth easy-to-clean finish which reduces the risk of accumulating germs which might otherwise lead to infection.

Aerospace

Aloxide can be used in a variety of on-board applications such as aircraft trollies and catering boxes. It is lightweight and resistant to high wear and tear.

Signage

Aloxide can be used in signage application providing greater resistance than paint and an authentic metallic design finish.
