Black Conductive Finish?


Is there such a thing as a black Chem Film/ Iridite/ Chromate? I am looking for a finish that is still conductive but needs to be black like a black anodize.

The anodize dye manufacturers, (i.e., Clariant, US Specialty), market dyes for chromating. I tried a few years ago & didn't get very good results. I don't think they can be made to look as good as dyed anodize.

Good luck,
