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, and of course anodizing – type I, II, and III.
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.
