Sun-Glo Machining and Metal Finishing
Type I is known as Chromic Acid Anodizing. It offers an exceptional thin corrosion resistant coating that ranges in thickness from 0.00005” to 0.0002”. This process is less corrosive than Type II and therefore making it safer to use on critical components where acid could perhaps become lodged in a seam or weld that could then compromise the integrity of the finished product. Chromic Acid Anodize appears much grayer in color and being a thinner coating absorbs less dye. This limits the Chromic Anodize as a decorative finish.
Here are some benefits of Type I Anodizing:
- Doesn’t conduct electricity
- Improved adhesion
- No dimensional change
- Can be dyed black
- Paint base
