Need info on Anodizing Mil Spec
MIL-A-H8625 ^ MIL-A-8625 type 2 Cl2
Q. A former supplier of anodized wire claimed to process the wire according to Mil Spec "MIL-A-H625 type 2 Cl2". I then greatly appreciate any information that anyone has about this process. The anodized wire was defective and the supplier refused to take back the defective product. We have filed a court case against them and they mentioned this spec in their reply.Jon Daniels

A. Hi Jon,
I double checked just to make certain, but there is no "MIL-A-H625 Type 2 class2" specification. There IS however the standard anodizing specification Mil-A-8625 [link is to free spec spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil]. Type II makes it clear that this is formed using sulfuric acid with a minimum coating weight of 1000 mg per square foot and class 2 means that it is dyed. This is the exact specification that we certify to when we do your aluminum rings and you should be able to expect results similar to what we send you - corrosion resistance, good color, uniform appearance. If you'd like, you can download the spec at http://assist.daps.dla.mil/quicksearch/ or give me a call and I can fill you in on more details.Jim Gorsich
