1) Anodize resists corrosion.
Tests reveal that 6061 aluminum, after
the anodizing process, withstood
corrosion for 336 hours in a 5% salt
spray test. Results will vary based upon
the alloy of the material and the prior
2) Anodizing provides good abrasion
Though there are more durable finishes,
anodize provides sufficient protection
against ultraviolet conditions, weather,
3) Anodize can be color dyed in
colors of Black, Green,
This provides an attractive and easily
identified part that is more attractive to
you or your customers.
- Some dyes provide a permanent
fade resistant color for long lasting outdoor
exposure in architectural and other similar applications.
- Other colored dyes provide an
attractive, sales enhancing decoration and
enhances consumer products for indoor use.
- The dyes can also be utilized
during in-house processing for easy part
parts having dissimilar materials installed
in them such as bushings, dowel pins, etc. should be installed

anodizing meets MIL-A-8625 specifications.
Coating / Iridite / Alodine
Coating provides the following benefits;
1) It provides
corrosion resistance on aluminum sheets, stampings,
extrusions, forgings and aluminum castings
without anodizing or any other
pre-coating processes. While results vary
depending on material alloy and
surface finish, tests indicate conversion
coating can resist corrosion in a
5% salt spray tank for 168 hrs.
2) Conversion Coating
provides a good paint base, and also provides nearly
zero electrical resistance. Since the coating
and seal are not applied
electrically and can be applied quickly,
Conversion Coating can prove to
be one of the most cost-effective methods to
provide a base primer prior
to applying paint and surface coatings.
3) Conversion Coating
prolongs shelf life of parts while resisting staining and
4) It provides
corrosion resistance on aluminum products by converting the
5) Conversion Coating
may be applied in a clear or gold finish, depending on
your individual preferences and requirements.
