FINEX is APL’s on-site anodising plant, and is the most modern facility of its kind in New Zealand.

FINEX produces both standard and ‘frost’ anodised product. Frost anodising is a lustrous finish with a high uniformity of appearance.

The plant includes the latest effluent treatment technology. An extensive underground storage and treatment system was included in the plant’s construction as a part of the comprehensive and integrated design approach undertaken.

Further sustainability measures were taken during the plant’s design and construction, including water recycling, re-use of process heat generated, and special treatment processes to ensure metal and solid waste is landfill compatible.
