Typical Finishes - Aluminium Cold Heading Wire
#4 Finish: A lustrous finish especially applicable for cold heading. This oxide free surface greatly improves tool life and uniformity in metal flow while heading. Product has enhanced, shiny appearance and will anodize well.

Anodizing Finish: This oxide free surface has specific applications in products that are color anodized or bright dipped as a final operation. Adds a luster to the anodized part. Improves corrosion resistance. Bright Finish: Clean, chrome-like finish comparable to stainless or chrome finish on steel; improves cosmetic appearance of aluminum wire.

DNR Finish: Specifically designed for those applications where surface imperfections must be minimized. Although technology is not present to provide a perfect surface, defects that are 1% of finished diameter are detected and removed with this process.

DOX Finish: A satiny white finish specifically used on heat treated cold heading wire and rod. This oxide free surface greatly improves uniformity in metal flow during heading, thus giving the added advantage needed when heading heat treated wire and rod.

MICRO Finish: A bright, lustrous finish applicable only to heat treated wire. This oxide free surface is particulary useful in escomatic wire or any application where close tolerances in diameter are required. Improved corrosion resistance is one of many advantages.

Type S Finish: Clean, dry finish specifically for applications in which lubrication cannot be on the wire. All in process lubrication is cleaned from wire.
