Graphite cathodes for anodizing of aluminum?


I have a customer who does type II anodizing. he is requesting graphite cathodes. However, I have no idea what type of graphite to use, or sizes of cathodes. tank is 6' x 3' x 42" deep (36" solution level).

Can anyone give me pointers?

Thanks in advance

Hi, Bruce. Letter 1177 talks a bit about graphite anodes and says they are part of the Sanford process.
