Tips and Troubleshooting for Type II Aluminum Anodizing

November 28, 2017


The number one problem people have when anodizing is not listening to a professional like myself. I wrote a book on this topic and have helped all these customers with their problems. I also carry all the proper  dyes and chemicals. The number 2 problem is too strong of acid mix and not listening to a professional like myself. The number 3 problem is not providing information or answering questions and sending me on a wild guessing game. The book i wrote is invaluable to any anodizer and the complete process and setup is in detail there.

Over the years I've had hundreds of questions on how to anodize aluminum so I wrote this manual to help setup with the anodizing phase. This contains everything I know and have tried to put this into an easier to follow format. This will be essential for those with limited knowledge and a learning tool for more advanced anodizers.
