A. Hi Shah. Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but I don't see how you can extrude a shape like that, and I'm not seeing anything to give me a sense of scale.

That short black line could be etching, but are you sure it's not mechanical damage -- a scratch?

Luck & Regards,

Q. Sir, we are using extruded rectangle section of 255 mm width & 20 mm thickness, 400 mm length. This section machined from both side of section & its thickness reduced to 18 mm. After machining this section is anodized in sulfuric acid bath to obtain 15 micron thickness. After anodizing line marks observed at different location in longitudinal direction as shown in photograph.
