Default Angle Iron/Aluminum

I am working on a project that will require me to create a ledge the
turns down at a 90 degree angle.

It has to be as resistant as possible to oxidation(ie:sweaty hands),
and also as dark as possible.(Preferably black).

The angle iron I've found at Home Depot has some sort of paint/coating
that doesn't seem durable, and the angle Aluminum there is too bright.

I'd appreciate any other ideas for a materials/coatings that may fit
my needs.

Thanks.

Check out powder coating. It is powdered plastic that is sprayed on
the metal, then melted.

Aluminum will oxidize in just a few minutes. The coating on steel is
scale and should be ground/sanded off before painting or powder
coating.

Hard Anodized aluminum angle should work. It will be black and a very
durable finish.


Thanks.

Since they do not have that at Home Depot, would you know the
best(cheapest) place to get it?

You'd have to buy the angle, then have it hard anodized. Should be a few
places fairly local to you that do that.

The spray paint?

I'm building a modular control panel with joysticks and buttons(which
is why I mentioned the sweaty hands).

Thanks.
