Wood grain finish on anodized aluminum without mechanical pre-treatment
I'm running a small anodizing shop in Sweden. We are specialized in color anodizing.
One of our customers wants a wood grain finish on their products. These are tubes about 200mm long and are vertically stacked on titanium racks. The customer gave us a sample of a similar product that had wood grain streaks and were not mechanically pretreated.
Is there a chemical way to do this?
Best regards, Martin Dehlin
