Arcadia offers anodized and painted finishes. You can design with creative color choices from PPG® and Valspar®. Ask your Arcadia representative for custom color options.
Anodizing is a process where aluminum is submerged in electrically charged acid. This creates a chemical reaction that darkens the aluminum, giving it color and creating a very hard surface.
The process and result are somewhat artistic and can create some color variation in the finish and from part to part. If exact color uniformity is desired, a painted finish is a better choice.
