ANODIZING PROCESSES

Anodizing provides aluminum parts with a hard abrasion and corrosion resistant oxide film formed from the aluminum substrate. Unlike many other metal finishing operations, anodizing is typically unique to aluminum. Additionally, anodizing forms an excellent paint base and helps insure adhesion of organic coatings such as zinc chromate primer, paints, and lubricants as well as providing electrical insulation and tends to minimize galvanic corrosion where aluminum is in contact with other metals.

Anodizing is typically considered in terms of the processes classified in Military Specification Mil-A-8625, as listed below:

  • Sulfuric Anodize
  • Chromic Anodize
  • Hard Anodize
  • Boric Sulfuric Anodize
  • Dyed and Non-Dyed Anodize
  • Alodine (Chemical Conversion)
  • Colored and Clear Alodine
