Anodized Coatings – Anodized coatings are created using a specific and carefully controlled electrochemical oxidation of aluminum surfaces. The general anodized finish provided with Champion’s products is a 0.4 mil clear anodized coating and is classified as Architectural Class II. The clear anodized finish results in a transparent coating that accentuates the silver-gray metallic property of the aluminum on which it is applied. An optional Class II coating provides a thicker 0.7 mil coating. There are various color options available for products finished with both Class I and II coatings.
