Surface Pitting of Titanium - AMS 2488 Anodize



(-----) 2006

From time to time we have experience surface pitting in titanium parts being anodized per AMS 2488 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] using reverse current in a solution of caustic soda. Tank parameters are always within limits and the pitting is generally random, that is, both high and low current densities, machined and un-machined areas. Any ideas?
