Mechanical Keyboard Case - 6063Alu(Anodized / Cataphoresis / Coating)

A mechanical keyboard with anodized, cataphoresis, and coating refers to a keyboard that has undergone multiple surface treatment processes to enhance its appearance, durability, and protection against wear and corrosion.

  1. Anodized: Anodizing is an electrochemical process that creates a protective oxide layer on the surface of a metal, typically aluminum. In the case of an anodized mechanical keyboard, the keyboard's frame or casing is made of aluminum and has undergone anodization. This process enhances the keyboard's durability by creating a thick and resilient layer that protects it from scratches, corrosion, and wear.

  2. Cataphoresis (also known as electrocoating or e-coating): Cataphoresis is an electrodeposition coating process that involves immersing the object in an electrically charged bath containing a water-based paint or coating. The keyboard components, such as the frame, plate, or keycaps, may undergo cataphoresis to provide a uniform and protective layer of coating. This process enhances the keyboard's resistance to wear, chemicals, and moisture.

  3. Coating: Coating refers to the application of a protective layer on the surface of the keyboard components. It can be a liquid-based paint, powder coating, or specialized coatings like PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) or DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon). Coatings can provide additional protection against scratches, abrasion, and corrosion, as well as offer aesthetic enhancements. Different coatings may have varying properties and visual effects, such as matte, glossy, or textured finishes.

By combining these surface treatments, the mechanical keyboard gains multiple benefits:

  • Enhanced durability: The anodized layer and coatings improve the keyboard's resistance to scratches, wear, and corrosion, making it more durable and long-lasting.

  • Aesthetics: The anodized layer and coating processes can provide a visually appealing finish, with options for different colors, textures, and gloss levels. This enhances the overall appearance of the keyboard.

  • Protection: The combination of anodizing, cataphoresis, and coating helps protect the keyboard components against moisture, chemicals, and other external factors, prolonging

It's important to note that the specific combination of anodization, cataphoresis, and coating processes may vary depending on the manufacturer and customization options available for mechanical keyboards.
