Anodize

MIL-A-8625F, Type II, Class 1 or 2

Anodizing is an electrochemical conversion process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the aluminum surface creating a durable, corrosion-resistant, decorative finish. The anodizing process requires the immersion of aluminum parts into an electrolyte bath creating an electric current which passes between the aluminum (the anode) and a cathode, (usually an aluminum or titanium bar). The coating produced through this process is extremely tough, making your parts resistant to the effects of time, corrosion, humidity, temperature and warping.

C.H. Thompson Finishing offers the most widely used form of anodizing, sulfuric acid anodizing, which provides for a wide range of finish thickness, creates corrosion and abrasion resistance, and readily accepts permanent color dyes.

CHT provides the following

Type II – Conventional Anodizing

Class 1 – Non-dyed
Class 2 – Dyed – Available colors – black, gold and olive drab. Other colors may be available on request.
