POWDER COATED, ANODIZED OR FACTORY RAW?

You decide what your frame looks like. The powder coating is a melted plastic coating, which is significantly scratch and impact resistant than conventional paint. Anodization is an electrochemical process used to color the surface of the aluminum. The oxide layer is even harder and more scratch resistant than any powder coating. Additional weight is not applied when anodizing. However, the thin oxide layer can be penetrated more easily. With a powder coating or paint can hide blemishes in the surface. Scratches, grooves and tool marks can be filled and smoothed like skin folds with make-up. An anodization hides nothing, reveals every flaw; the brighter the anodizing, the clearer. Welded frames therefore produce different shades when anodized. The current trend, however, goes to frames that are delivered “factory-raw”. The frames are not coated after production, but migrate directly into the assembly. You get your frame without coating (also no clear coat). Over time, an oxide layer / patina forms on the frame, which slightly fades the shine of the raw aluminum. With the help of a polishing fleece, however, the old splendor can be restored in a few simple steps. In addition to the unmistakable look, the “factory raw” look best reveals the manufacturing quality and the technical charm of the frame. Over time, an oxide layer / patina forms on the frame, which slightly fades the shine of the raw aluminum. With the help of a polishing fleece, however, the old splendor can be restored in a few simple steps. In addition to the unmistakable look, the “factory raw” look best reveals the manufacturing quality and the technical charm of the frame. Over time, an oxide layer / patina forms on the frame, which slightly fades the shine of the raw aluminum. With the help of a polishing fleece, however, the old splendor can be restored in a few simple steps. In addition to the unmistakable look, the “factory raw” look best reveals the manufacturing quality and the technical charm of the frame.
