Anodizing Al cast


Is it possible to anodize Al cast if there are steel parts inserted in it (incovered). If not, why?

If the steel is exposed to the anodizing solution it will be destroyed.

The anodizing process uses a sulfuric acid solution that will dissolve uncovered steel parts. It can be done if the steel parts are thoroughly masked using RTV silicone or other simialar masking agent.
