When performance is already at its peak, it is time to look at appearance.
At Argos, we like to look around by attending fairs and showrooms. Detecting the reigning trends in strategic sectors such as furniture and cars allows us to anticipate the needs of designers and suggest possible solutions.
Anodized aluminium is used in all sectors: automobiles, furniture, electronics, etc. … probably because anodized aluminium provides superior resistance to atmospheric agents and other corrosive agents.
This places it among the first materials chosen when manufacturing profiles and structures for use outside or in hazardous places where other less-expensive materials or metals would give poor results.
With its insulating properties and resistance, anodized aluminium is often used as a frame to seal photovoltaic modules, which must endure adverse weather conditions of various kinds throughout their lifetime. The use of anodized aluminium also allows for easy transport, installation and maximum safety over time.
The important thing is to supply the most requested finishes in the catalogue with the various types of treatment.
Designers will find a remarkable variety of surfaces for creating their designs in aluminium.
The colour swatch book is a very useful tool in the designer’s hands because it gives a good view of the different results that can be obtained.
Finishes and colours can be agreed on by request to create customized effects and unique surfaces.
The quality and properties of finished anodized aluminium depend on the processing conditions: current density, temperature of the bath, duration of the treatment, shape and thickness of the aluminium piece, etc.
At the beginning of the treatment, there is a slight increase in the size of the material, but this is later cancelled by the action of the oxidation process. It follows that experience with the treatment greatly influences the final results.
Over time, the systems have been renewed and made more technologically advanced, with particular attention to the aesthetic impact of the workmanship, from the colour anodizing to glossy and matt finishes.
