Aluminum Finishing

Aluminum Finishing FacilityRP Abrasives provides affordable metal surfacing solutions, including aluminum finishing, also known as aluminum anodizing, using our efficient tumble finish technology and state-of-the-art equipment. We specialize in two types of tumble finishing methods: high-energy and vibratory tumbling.

Process for Aluminum Finishing

Aluminum finishing alloys with high-energy tumbling involves placing parts, media, water and surfactant into a closed-lid barrel. The tumbler creates a powerful centrifugal force that efficiently achieves the desired aluminum finish. At RP Abrasives, we house four high-energy tumblers, ranging from 20 liters to 120 liters. This enables us to handle finishing in batches of one to thousands of parts with ease.

Vibratory tumbling, on the other hand, uses friction to smooth aluminum. Vibrating media against the alloy creates the desired finishing effect.
