MICRALOX is a patented aluminum oxide coating with a micro-crystalline barrier that revolutionizes aluminum anodizing. MICRALOX produces a long lasting, virtually indestructible surface that delivers dramatically superior chemical corrosion resistance and eliminates color fading due to super-heated steam, and is an excellent alternative to stainless steel, plastic, and other materials. MICRALOX is particularly effective in significantly extending product life cycles for medical instruments and equipment, which are subjected to today’s aggressive high-pH cleaning and sterilization protocols.
