Non strip aluminium racking components



August 17, 2012

Q. We have used aluminium rods for racking parts. After anodising we strip them (rods) so we use them again and again. But last days a friend send us a special alloy aluminium and he said to me you will not struggle to strip again and again. I didn't believe at first also suppose it's a "joke". But we tried them 20-30 cycles (we didn't strip during cycle even once) but very interestingly all cycle results (micron thickness all stable) was fine even 20th cycle. So I say to myself it is a revolution. I called my friend and immediately I buy huge amount. But he said it cames from abroad so we are waiting for this special alloy aluminium material.

Does anybody know or use this material?

A. Hi Alaatin. Titanium racking components work that way. Are you sure the rods aren't titanium (titanium is almost twice as heavy as aluminum, so you should be able to tell from the weight whether the rods are aluminum or titanium).

Q. Hi Ted. Of course I know titanium is another choice for racking materials, but for high cost reasons, it isn't available and logical. Also coloring doesn't run with titanium. But my tries absolutely with aluminium racking. Also I can give you a clue which this special alloy's copper rate a little high so for extrusion is a problem for this; it comes from abroad. Maybe still all of you don't believe me ... but tried and saw this results.

A. Hi again.

I don't disbelieve you at all, cousin Alaatin. I'm just not familiar with it.

Seriously, please let us know when you find out more about those aluminum rods, Alaattin.
Much less seriously, Marc has a whole trunk full of black money and gallons of Tebi-Metonic, SSD, and Vectrol Paste to clean it with. Are you sure you won't sell him one measly little aluminum rod for a whole trunkful of money? :-)

Hi Ted. Joking aside, I see nobody knows this event, but I am very serious ... also all my writings true and familiar, I swear.
By the way, Ted, have you ever been in Turkey? I want to invite you to Turkey. If you come here please write me beforehand. We can talk rod trade details :))

Hi again. I am retired from everything except running this website, and won't be buying, selling, or trading stuff.
But I have never been to Turkey and would love to visit some day. I recognize Turkey as the crossroads of the world and the crossroads of history from before written history even began. The most important place in the world. Regards,

Thanks for the kind words. "Doyen" is sometimes used to describe a "senior correspondent" instead of a "dean", and indeed I do find myself in that position! I'm certainly no dean of anything, not really having much first-hand knowledge of finishing after a whole lifetime in it -- but I am forever reporting to the readers what someone else (who actually did it and actually knows about it) once told me :-)
