The process of anodising is more environmentally friendly than other metal finishing processes. Anodising products do not contain heavy metals, halogens or volatiles (with exception of organic or integral colour anodising). The most common anodising effluents are: aluminium sulphate and aluminium hydroxide which are recycled for the manufacture of aluminium, baking powder, newsprint, cosmetics, or fertiliser or used by industrial waste water treatment systems.
The hardness of the material is about 8-9 on the MOHS scale of mineral hardness (ie between quartz and ceramic) yet is also brittle. Please note the sheet can be bent however hairline cracks will emerge around the bent area due to the hard, exterior surface.
