  2. About Micro-Crystalline Anodizing (Micralox)

How Is Micralox Coating Developed?

MICRALOX starts with the SANFORD PROCESS QUANTUM™ hard coat, a unique low voltage hard coat anodizing. The resulting oxide is translucent at greater thicknesses without compromising abrasion resistance and micro-hardness – a significant benefit when the aluminum oxide finish is to be dyed. Whereas conventional high voltage hard coating produces a dark grey or green substrate that can only produce dark, obscure colors, SANFORD PROCESS QUANTUM™ hard coat produces vibrant colors normally associated with decorative (Type II) anodizing.
