Tamlyn stocks Clear Anodized (Architectural 200R1) in almost all extruded profiles. In addition, other anodized finishes such as Dark Bronze, Medium Bronze, Light Bronze, Gold, or Black are available as special order. All anodized finishes are provided within an industry range of color consistency and can vary slightly from item to item. Special order anodized colors are subject to specific quantity minimums by item. Anodizing is an electrochemical conversion process that deposits an oxide film on the aluminum profile. A natural oxidation process occurs on all bare aluminum, however, producing the oxidation process artificially through anodizing creates a thicker, harder, and more durable oxide film which is an extremely durable finish resistant to most forms of airborne corrosion.
Standard Clear Anodized – Architectural 200R1 medium etch (AA-M32CA21). Thickness of anodic coating shall be tested in accordance with ASTM B-244-68. Color Anodized Finish – two step impregnated color Class II Architectural of 0.40-0.70 mils (AA-M12C22A33) Thickness of anodic coating shall be tested in accordance with ASTM B-244-68. Tamlyn also provides Clear Anodized fabricated profiles in 0.040 sheet stock to compliment the extruded Clear Anodized profiles.
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying finish to products. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high- quality, and attractive finish. Powder coating gives longest-lasting and most color-durable quality finishes available. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Tamlyn powder coats in-house to match all major siding colors. Quantity limits apply for custom color powder coat processing.
Tamlyn also can provide traditional wet paint process for custom colors. This is advantageous often for smaller volume orders. The color control and matching can be precisely managed to assure consistency throughout a job or project. Minimum quantity limits apply for all color matches.
