Special dyes for aluminum finishing

We manufacture a full range of dyes for aluminum finishing. Suitable for outdoor and indoor architectural applications, our Sanodal® range of dyes offers unsurpassed light- and weather fastness properties, in a broad range of shades. The Sanodure® range of dyes is especially recommended for indoor aluminum finishing applications; with good fade-resistant properties, it comes in a comprehensive range of colors. The Sanodye® range comprises organic dyes with a chemical structure that is free of heavy metals, offering environmental advantages for aluminum anodizers. Selected elements of the Sanodye® range exhibit the same excellent light- and weather fastness properties as the Sanodal® dyes.
