Conventional Aluminum Anodizing

Aluminum anodizing is an outstanding solution for protecting parts and components against everyday wear and tear. We have over forty years of experience providing excellent outcomes for customers requiring conventional MIL-A-8625 Type II and Type III anodic Coatings.

Aluminum anodizing is an electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the naturally-occurring, protective oxide layers of aluminum parts and components. It provides numerous benefits which can significantly improve the performance of any treated part, including far greater hardness, extended working life, and better corrosion, abrasion, and dielectric resistance.

Anodizing (MIL-A-8625 Type II)

Our standard anodizing process, called Sulfuric or MIL-A-8625 Type II anodizing, produces a clear coating that improves your parts’ corrosion resistance and durability, and provides excellent electrical insulation. These aluminum anodized coatings can be dyed in wide variety of colors.


Hard Coat Anodizing (MIL-A-8625 Type III)

Delivers superior hardness, uniformity, and durability, provides excellent corrosion and abrasion resistance. Compared to MIL-A-8625 Type II, the coating is thicker, denser, has higher corrosion and wear resistance, and higher dielectric properties.
