FAQ about Titanium Anodizing

Titanium Anodizing! 1. What is titanium anodizing? Anodizing titanium is a process that adjusts the level of the oxide layer on the metals surface. This adjustment causes light to refract and changes the spectrum of light, resulting in perceived color. By precisely controlling the surface oxide level, an entire range of colors can be produced. Anodizing titanium is not a color coating, nor does it use dyes. The oxide layer on titanium grows naturally at room temperature.  Anodizing causes this oxide layer to grow further than it would naturally, producing thicker layers of oxide. As the layer thickens, it begins to interrupt the light waves as they pass through and reflect off the metal surface. This interference creates color. Since the thickness of the oxide controls...
