In addition to the main facility in Worcester, LLS operates its own high quality structural anodising plant from a 5,000 m2 facility in Wellingborough. The facility is capable of anodising 400,000 m2 per annum and also acts as a logistics co-ordination hub for key customers. The structural aluminium anodising line produces up to 5 flight bars per hour capable of surface treating cast, sheet and extruded alloys.
Anodise finishes available are:
* Clear anodise to BS EN 7599: 2010 with anodising thicknesses from AA5 to AA25 and pre-treatments E0 or E6
* Black anodising to the above standard in thicknesses over AA10
