Conductivity difference between clear and yellow chromate
Is there a conductivity difference between yellow chromate and clear chromate on and die cast aluminum substrate ( for MIL spec) product?

Yes there is a difference, Jim; the thinner clear chromates are more conductive. Please see
Mil-DTL-5541 [link is to free spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil] and the distinction between type 1 and type 3 coatings. Good luck.
