Bright dipping for aluminum



2004

Hi,

I'm Sherief Fawzy a production manager for an anodizing plant in Saudi Arabia. I used to use a bright dipping tank for aluminum before anodizing which is a mixture of phosphoric acid 85% and sulfuric acid 98% with ratio of 1:1 at 90 °C and this gives me a good results for aluminum sheets and profiles and I have found that you suggesting mixture of phosphoric, sulfuric, nitric and some copper salt additives. Could you please tell me the actual ratios for this mixture for industrial use? I have a problem of over heating during the brightening by phosphoric sulfuric 1:1 mixture can I avoid this? can you send me the way of analysis for your mixtures?

Thank you, kind regards,
