Looking for Anodizing books



2002

Q. I'm aero-modeling and I made my own model engines. I'm looking for some information about books and publications on colour anodising for starting to make little items for my amateur engines.

"Artists Anodizing Aluminum: The Sulfuric Acid Process"
by David LaPlantz
from Abe Books
or
info on Amazon

August 9, 2008

A. Hi, Alberto. Robert Probert's "Aluminum How-To" is a good and readable book on the subject. I haven't personally read "Artists Anodizing Aluminum: the Sulfuric Acid Process" [affil. link to book on Amazon], but it sounds like it may be useful.

The most thorough book on anodizing is "The Surface Finishing and Treatment of Aluminum and its Alloys", by Wernick, Pinner & Sheasby -- but it's probably both a little deep and a little too expensive for introductory needs. Good luck.
