Learn to work with your anodizing supplier and improve the finish of your products

Think properties - not coating thickness

Do you often experience that working with anodizing suppliers can be challenging?


Is it difficult to get data about the process, or even know which questions to ask?


A course tailored to your needs 


Our aim with this course is to provide you with a good basic knowledge of how to communicate with your aluminum anodizing supplier.  


The classes are taught at an introductory level with some of the topics explored in depth.  


Every class is planned as a stand-alone course, enabling you to buy just the classes that match your specific needs. But we highly recommend taking all four classes as this is the best way to cover everything you need to know about working with your anodizing supplier.

Instructor(s)

Anne Deacon Juhl

My name is Anne Deacon and I have worked in the anodizing industry for more than 25 years. My anodizing journey started when I wrote my Ph.D. thesis as a research scientist at the Technical University of Denmark about "Pulse Anodizing of Extruded and Cast Aluminum Alloys".

After finishing my Ph.D. I worked with anodizing both as an independent consultant and as a supervisor and quality manager in anodizing companies. Thus, I have great experience with different kinds of chemical and electrochemical surface treatments, such as chromating, electroplating, electroless plating - Anodizing – type I, II, and III are my favorites.

What I am most passionate about is the sustainable aspect of aluminum anodizing. I strongly believe anodizing is the most efficient and sustainable solution for anodizing aluminum. This conviction has also led to my decision to create AnodizingSchool where I seek to enhance knowledge about anodizing in the world.
