Special Finish Anodized Aluminum
Already anodized and ready for processing, Novelis SSL BF increases the range of coil-anodized Novelis products.
Compared to conventional Novelis SSL, this new product is the result of production developments using special rolling processes, offering a distinctive surface structure both in appearance and touch.
During the rolling process, an exclusive brushed stainless steel effect emerges from the special surface finish. Now designers and manufacturers have the benefit of lightweight aluminum facades, while they can offer the highly desirable aesthetics of stainless steel to end users. In addition, SSL BF can be supplied without anodizing and is then suitable for batch anodizing.
The Look of Stainless Steel
Upon anodizing, Novelis SSL BF special finish anodized aluminum becomes more durable and has a highly resistant protective layer. This makes it ideal for outdoor architectural applications, in addition to its use indoors for consumer goods such as refrigerators and stoves.
To ensure color consistency and uniformity of appearance, sheets should be installed edge to edge, taking into consideration the rolling direction, which can be identified by the protective film.
Using Novelis’ highly regarded anodizing quality aluminum as the base material ensures that the excellent characteristics of aluminum are perfectly combined with the look of stainless steel. The advantages of SSL BF special finish anodized aluminum include:
Weatherproof and UV resistance
High abrasion resistance
Anti-static and insulating
Resistance to neutral cleansers, dirt and corrosion
