Anne Deacon Juhl

Owner of AluConsult

Hi, I am Dr. Anne Deacon Juhl

I have worked in the anodizing industry for 25 years. AluConsult is a personally engaged and competent partner and advisor when it comes to the use of aluminum and the surface treatment of aluminum.

How I work

I convert high tech knowledge into daily practice to solve your specific anodizing problem. By working closely together with different test laboratories and universities I am able to give an independent view and the newest knowledge to solve the problem. 

I work independently and with a desire for unique and openminded views on the anodizing to get an optimal solution for the finished product. Thanks to my large network and experience, I am able to create unique surface solutions. 

I am your extra pair of eyes looking at your anodizing process from a new perspective while working with you in close contact. By providing ideas and advice based on many years of experience with surface treatment of aluminum I help you to achieve better-than-best practice. 

My Mission

Your Value

I seek to create value for my clients by pushing boundaries and setting ambitious goals for myself and for my clients.

My Engagement

I take my business personal! I don’t just want to be your consultant but your competent partner and advisor when it comes to the use of aluminium and anodizing.

Our Knowledge sharing 

I believe the best anodizing results are achieved by knowledge sharing and openness. So, I am happy to be an open book to you!

Your Expansion

I will help you to expand your business by advancing your knowledge about anodized aluminum. The better you are informed, the better you can grow.

my engagement in the anodizing world

In my 25 years of working with AluConsult, I have attracted clients such as Hydro, Terma, Ohlins, and over 200 other companies from small to big. I am a proud member of IHAA – the International Hard Anodizing Association, AAC – Aluminum Anodizing Council and ARC – Aluminum Recycled Council.

I am both a member of the education and the academic committee of the Aluminum Anodizers Council, where I have also served on the boards of directors. I am invited as a speaker typically for 1 – 2 times a year at major conferences, and in 2018 I was a co-host for the ASST – Aluminium Surface, Science and Technology Symposium.

My writings about anodizing

Ph.D. Thesis

My Ph.D. contributed to the groundbreaking method of pulse anodizing and was done in collaboration with the companies Sapa, Hydro, and Danfoss.

I wrote my Ph.D. about “Pulse Anodising of Extruded and Cast Aluminium Alloys” at the Technical University of Denmark.

Journals & Proceedings

I have written articles about anodizing, pulse anodizing, energy saving, aerospace alloys and much more in magazines like Light Metal Age, PFonline, and Aluminium Scandinavia.

My conference presentations have led to papers in the proceedings in organisations like AAC, ESTAL, A3ST, SUR/FIN, Elmia, ASST, and INTERALL.

Blog & Knowledge Sharing

I also take great joy in sharing my knowledge  about aluminum anodizing. Since 2008 I have been writing on my blog Anodizing World.
As of 2021, I have moved my blog here.

I have also started AnodizingSchool, an e-learning platform about anodizing, where you can find online classes but also free previews and materials.

Read my Ph.D.: Pulse Anodising of Extruded and Cast Aluminium Alloys

This thesis comes in two parts dealing with pulse anodizing of an extruded aluminum alloy in part I and various cast aluminum alloys in Part II. Gain insight into the theoretical considerations as well as various tests of the aluminum oxide layer. Experimental work is taken into considerations and conclusions on the work are offered.
