The QUALANOD international quality label is aimed at companies involved in anodising aluminium for use in architectural and industrial applications where both appearance and long life are important. It also covers decorative anodising and hard anodising. Decorative anodising is used to produce a decorative finish with a uniform, aesthetically pleasing appearance as the primary characteristic. Hard anodising creates a coating where high wear resistance or micro-hardness is the primary characteristic.
This global mark of quality is designed to safeguard high standards when it comes to the oxidation of aluminium and its alloys. The QUALANOD Specifications define requirements for sulphuric acid anodising and for products manufactured that way.
We monitor the businesses concerned to ensure they comply with the QUALANOD quality regulations. Our qualified, QUALANOD-approved inspectors review the comprehensive programme of self-auditing and documentation measures.
