The Astreea Igloo has got an upgrade! The Aluminium frame of the igloo is now anodised aluminium meaning that is has been treated to develop an exceptionally durable finish.
Anodising is a method for changing the surface chemistry of metals. It protects against corrosion, enhances aesthetic qualities, resists scratching and is one of the most durable surface finishes available.
Unlike other finishes, anodising allows the aluminium to maintain its metallic appearance. The fundamental difference between anodised aluminium and non-anodised aluminium is that the former has a layer of oxide over the surface, whereas the latter does not. From a practical standpoint, anodised aluminium offers several benefits. The main benefit of anodised aluminium is greater protection from corrosion.
The electrical current oxidizes the surface and creates a protective film. Because of that, anodised aluminium does rust but not in a typical way, and more importantly not in a harmful way. It has increased resistance to corrosion and wear.
