Pricing an anodising job


Minimum charges:


Minimum anodising charge for CASH customers is $120 + GST + freight + consumables (effective 1 April 2020)

Free machining - 2000 grade alloy pricing (Effective 1 July 2022)

Any job that contains 2000 grade alloy will be subject to a run charge of;

  • $120 for natural anodising
  • $240 for colour, marine grade, semi hard or hard anodising

Assuming customers are prepared to wait for Advanced Anodising Ltd to receive other 2000 grade alloy parts/jobs, then the charge will be reduced accordingly. The minimum of which is no less than the standard minimum charge for each type of anodising.  2000 grade alloys are not compatible to anodise with other grades and as such require a separate processing run. Our current approach to charging this was no longer sustainable hence the change.

Anodising rates:


Standard anodising rate =  Based on jigging requirements, number and size of parts, alloys present, natural or coloured ,etc

Hard anodising rate = Based on jigging requirements, number and size of parts, alloys present, natural or coloured, etc

Turn Around Time

Turn around times vary all the time and depend on a range of factors such as the amount and type of work we have in the workshop.  As a rule we have an in-house target of -

Average 5 working days for commercial work and 15 working days for private/non-commercial work.  Where possible we will do jobs quicker than our target time frame.

Please note that certain jobs may take longer than our in-house target due to things such as the size and complexity of the job and ofcourse our other anodising commitments.


Priority Service Surcharge:

Jobs that require 'priority service' (same or next day dispatch) around will incur a 17.5% surcharge on the cost of the job excluding the freight charge.  This would depend on our scheduling at the time of the job arriving as we may need to reschedule other customers work, organise extra staff, etc.  The surcharge will be a minimum of $30.00 + GST + freight [Priority pricing effective 1 August 2022]

The availability of our priority service is dependent on the size of job and our current commitments.  As such a priority service may not always be avialable on your job.  Priority will always be given to our regular customers.

Please note that if we are unable to provide priority service then this does not automatically mean a 2 day service, as all non-priority service jobs fall under our target of 5 working days or less.


Extra Charges:


Stripping existing anodising =  $85/hr + GST

Masking of parts i.e. bearing spaces =  $85/hr + GST

Sanding/extra cleaning/etc... =  $85/hr + GST

Please note that metal polishing is not part of our standard service and we will typically forward polishing work to the Metal Polish Company in Hamilton.
