Information on Anodize Films:
At Hohman Plating, we offer:
- Chromic Acid Anodize
- Sulfuric Acid Anodize
- Hard Anodize
Aluminum anodization is a significant commercial process. Anodic films on aluminum are electrically insulating (dielectric) and tend to minimize galvanic corrosion where aluminum is in contact with other metals. The anodic film formed by anodizing also provides an excellent paint base and helps insure adhesion of organic coatings such as zinc chromate primer, paints, and lubricants. Aluminum anodization is typically considered in terms of the anodizing processes classified in AMS and Mil-A-8625.
Benefits of Anodize on Aluminum:
- Corrosion prevention
- Various Colors
- Electrical insulation "dielectric"
- Wear resistance
- Wear plus lubrication (PTFE impregnated hard anodize only)
