Introducing Sapphire Metal Finishing – a world class anodizing and secondary finishing service provider, specializing in aluminum anodizing and chemfilm coatings located in Caldwell, Idaho. At Sapphire we use lean manufacturing principles to deliver quality anodizing services with a quick turnaround. Sapphire produces three anodize film types: • Type II - decorative anodize typically 0.6 mil • Type IIB - thin decorative anodize, 0.25 mil, ideal for 2024 clear & color finishes • Type III - true, hard anodize 0.5 to 2.0 mils Color options include clear, and dye formulations producing black, blue, orange, red, tan, brown, olive drab, green, gray, and gold as standard offerings. Other colors, such as bright purple, are available as custom specialty colors for additional cost. Sapphire’s default finish is a one-minute etch, but other finish options are no etch, and two minute etch. Chemfilm conversion coating processes comply with MIL-DTL-5541F for Type II, Class 1A and Class 3. Automated media tumbling and bead blasting prior to anodize or chemfilm coating are additional surface treatments available to provide various levels of matte finish as desired. We also offer masking and plugging to maintain electrical conductivity for grounding connections and to prevent dimensional changes. Our lead time is 4 to 8 business days depending on your order complexity and quantity. We also have 24, 48, or 72 hour expedited services available for your unexpected emergency needs.
