Precision Coating’s MIL-A-8625 Anodized Aluminum Finishing

If you need to give an aluminum surface the hardness of case-hardened steel while maintaining the light-weight of aluminum, make Precision Coating your number one choice. Our custom finishes will make your surface sapphire-hard and corrosion- and abrasion-resistant, help it conduct or resist heat, give it lubricity and dielectric properties, and can even color it.

We make extensive use of the Sanford Process®, a proprietary, hard anodizing method so versatile that it enables us to hard coat virtually any alloy—including 2000 series and cast—to meet your particular requirements.

Precision Coating offers the following anodic coating types and classes:
