Spanish term or phrase: con reservas de conductividad eléctrica
Context is an Internet brochure advertising coated metal products. The complete phrase is "Anodizado con reservas de conductividad eléctrica." I propose "Anodizing with electrical conductivity reserves."

English translation:anodization
Explanation:
The name of the process is "anodization" (Check the second link below)
As regards the whole sentence, I think it means that the process is done without losing the properties of electrical conductivity: "Algo muy importante de aclarar es que el aluminio es un excelente conductor eléctrico pero el proceso natural de oxidación y el anodizado neutraliza esta conductividad en la superficie" (This is taken from the first link)
Please, check if this fits your whole context.

Patricia

Thanks for your clarification and helpful links. I didn't know that anodizing aluminum eliminated
its electrical conductivity.

Explanation:
Only thing is: I would write adonized
with instead of adonizing with.
Anodizar means to coat electroliticly ( a metal part of aluminium or another metal, that will serve as anode) of an oxid layer with the intend to make it more resistant to attrition and corrosion.
Hope it helps!

Explanation:
sorry,just wanted to apologize for spelling mistake that could cause confusion.
It should read anodized and not adonized

Anodized = anodizado


Explanation:
Your translation is fine except for the fact that anodizing is "änodizando" excepto si se pusiera "by anodizing" que se convertiría en la sustantivización del verbo...como I like swuiming. (me gusta la natación) puesto que anodizing de otro modo es gerundio...anodizando. Por eso yo propondría "anodized with elecrical conductivity reserves" Suerte.

anodized with exceptions for electric conducts


Explanation:
Excuse me for coming in late. Maybe too late.
Anodizing takes electrical conductivity away from the surface.
If you have an aluminum box used for housing an electronics device, you might want to "earth" the device in the box. So when they make it, they can "reserve" some part, eg around a hole for an earthing screw, from the anodizing process.
(Would be nice to know if this fits into your context!)
