Determining sulfate in aluminum anodize



A discussion started in 1996.
Add your Q. or A. to restore it to the "Current Topics" discussions.

(1996)

I am trying to determine the amount of sulfate contained in the anodic coating when anodizing aluminum in 12% sulfuric acid. Is sulfuric acid consumed in any other way in the anodizing solution?

I can not find any literature that will address this issue.

Thank you

See our book section for some basic references on anodizing and/or zip over to Anodizer's Plaza, a web site in Japan, written in English, and available under our WWW links. See my response to your letter #287 for two references.

The Canning Handbook is another, the Garden State Electroplating Manual is another.
