Can't get proper black color on hardcoat anodizing

July 27, 2021

Q. I have a customer part which is requesting for Type 3 Class 2 Anodizing, we are able to meet the thickness of the coat which is 40-60 microns, however after black dyeing I can't seem to match the color of a sample piece given to me by the customer.

61295-1

Details of my process are below.

Part Material : Alu 5083
Dye: Sanodal Deep Black MlW
Dye Concentration: 10g/l
Temp : 55-60
Immersion time 10-20mins

Please advise.

The pores of Type III anodize are much smaller than those produced with Type II anodize. At a minimum, better rinsing is required.

Consider reviewing the FAQ's on this website (Introduction to Anodizing of Aluminum) for guidance on post anodize treatments, or review post 56305 for some tips.
