Anodizing aluminum is the base and core technology of ALOX™. While anodizing aluminum and forming an Al2O3 layer, a porous structure is formed.The pores are orderly organized and having a hexagonal shape and structure. The pores can be of various sizes, distances, internal shapes and depths. Al2O3 porous layers are used in Nano industry as templates, allowing forming various nano elements such as nano wires of various materials and structures, nano filters and more.

MCL developed the expertize of controlling the porous structure properties (pores size, depth, shape, etc.) and can participate in development and manufacturing of various nano elements using this expertize and ALOX™ technology.
