Deep sea components which are subject to harsh salt water environments. Ideal for the production of hard wear-resistant surfaces on aluminium for aircraft and general engineering uses.
Machinery, hydraulics and tooling. Examples of hard blue and hard black anodised components Natural hard anodised series alloy. Correct jigging is essential to the resulting finish, and good jig points are required, a consideration that should be made at the design stage of a component.
Masking can be undertaken to restrict the hard anodising to the waer resistant surfaces such as cylinder bores. Key strengths of hard anodising include: Hard Anodising Hard anodising is primarily a functional surface finish applied where aluminium components require increased wear resistance and surface hardness.
There are a number of limitations associated with Sulphuric Anodising:. These differing natural coating colours will clearly influence the final colour of any components which require dyeing after hard anodising and it is usually appropriate for us to provide a colour sample for approval before production batch sizes are processed.
Typical applications for hard anodised components are: If these apply then maybe semi-hard anodising would make a suitable alternative. Hard anodising also provides a high degree of electrical insulation.
Hydraulic systems, valves, pumps and pulleys.
If uncertain as to suitability ref your aluminium please call. The use of loose, sliding or intermittent contacts will result ddf an unsatisfactory connection and give rise to faults such as thin coatings, burning at the contact points or even failure to obtain an anodised coating. For example, hard anodised series alloys will have a dark grey colour in a xef finish, whereas series alloys will give a light sandy colour finish.
Blind holes will receive a much lower coating thickness which decreases with depth. It is worth calling us at the design stage Finished surface rougher than original, therefore higher quality surface roughness required of original than desired hard anodised finish Sharp edges should be radiused before processing as there is always the risk of thinning, chipping or flaking of the film under high impact load, particularly on alloys with a high zinc or magnesium content Applications: Moving parts in machinery for packaging systems and general engineering applications.
We offer tank sizes up to 8′ x 5′ x 3′. Restrictions There are a few considerations to be aware of when considering hard anodising. Hard anodising is primarily a functional surface finish applied where aluminium components require ded wear resistance and surface hardness.
Colours will tend to be darker and will vary widely between alloys such as and series alloys. Examples of hard blue and hard black anodised components Natural hard anodised series alloy Natural hard anodised series alloy. Staan suitable for free cutting aluminium. This is usually performed to maintain areas of electrical conductivity for earthing purposes. We offer a fast turn around because of the edf size of our tanks.
Restrictions on types of aluminium suitable for hard anodising. Choice Of Alloys The colour and appearance of hard anodised components varies significantly depending on the alloy used. Maximum Size Criteria The table below outlines the maximum size criteria for hard anodising: The resulting anodic film has more uniform crystalline structure which gives the increased hardness.
This process is then repeated with the asking reversed. There are a number of limitations associated with Sulphuric Anodising: We can carry out basic masking of components to prevent individual 03-6 or holes from being anodised. This process usually involves the sulphuric or chromic anodising dtan the non critical areas with the stopping off of the areas to be hard anodised.
Colour matching is more difficult with a hard anodised component. Natural hard anodised series alloy.

We sta specialist chilling equipment and a modern pulse rectifier to achieve these conditions. The hard anodising process uses sulphuric acid at a higher concentration than for normal anodising but it is carried out at a solution temperature close to 0 o C with a significantly higher voltage being applied.
Edges of items to be hard anodised need to be radiused. Hard anodising may impair the surface finish, so surfaces to be treated should have a finish superior to that required on the processed item.
