Anodizing is an electrochemical process that uniformly converts an aluminum surface to an aluminum oxide film. This provides corrosion and abrasion resistance, increased paint adhesion, and improved cosmetic appearance. Anodizing aluminum also increases wear resistance, provides electrical insulation, and may be dyed various colors for cosmetic purposes
A cosmetic finish that protects aluminum parts from corrosion by forming an aluminum oxide coating. Per spec, parts will run through cleaners, etches, deoxidizers, dyes, and sealers as needed for a complete cycle.
- Anodize Clear
(MIL-A-8625 Type 2 Class 1)
- Anodize Dyed (Black, Red, Gold, Blue, Olive Drab, Gray)
(MIL-A-8625 Type 2 Class 2) (AMS-A-8625) (AMS-2471)
Similar to sulfuric anodize process, except the coating is very thick
(0.002” on average). This provides an aluminum oxide coating that protects from wear and tear. Per spec, parts will run through cleaners, etches, degreasers, dyes, and sealers as needed for a complete cycle.
- Hardcoat Anodize Clear
(MIL-A-8625 Type 3 Class 1)
- Hardcoat Anodize Dyed (Black, Red, Gold, Blue, Olive Drab, Gray)
(MIL-A-8625 Type 3 Class 2) (AMS-A-8625) (AMS-2482)
