Aluminum Cases: Style and Durability – Key Factors

– Aluminum alloy used in making ZERO Halliburton travel cases. – A chemical treatment to the aluminum surface to prevent corrosion. Color addition is also part of the anodize process. – Mechanically polishing the surface in preparation for anodizing. Two finishes are utilized: satin brush (ie. Silver cases) and mirror polished (ie. Polished Gold). – A hardware or “lip” fitting on the shells consisting of a male and female portion. When lined with neoprene gasket seal prevents dust and moisture […]

ZERO Halliburton Heat Treat and Anodizing Process

The heating process immediately follows the deep draw process. Called heat treat, this process is critical in making sure ZERO Halliburton shells reach maximum quality hardness and structural rigidity. Heat treat is a two-stage process. 1. the shells are heated to over 900 degrees for nearly 30 minutes. 2. then they are quenched or sprayed using cold water. This heating-quenching process shifts the aluminum molecular state from a soft state when the aluminum can be formed or drawn to a […]
