Anodizing A380 vs. A360

Ed. note: Please!
No abstract questions.
Huh?

October 6, 2021

Q. I want to anodize on A360 and/or A380. Which will be better results to apply. After casting of A360 and A380, which is better for hardness?

A. Hi Nikunj. A380 is more common but lower hardness. To my knowledge there is no substantial difference in anodizing the two, but since A380 is far more common, any anodizer of castings will be familiar with it. Neither alloy is great, and neither will be decorative.

The question could be starting on the wrong foot ... sort of like saying you're beginning a health food diet and want to know whether you should drink Coke or Pepsi with your meals :-)

Please try to give us your actual situation (what are the parts & where are they used, Type II or Type III anodizing, general exposure & wear requirement, aesthetic expectations if any), and I think the readers will be able to help you. Thanks!

Luck & Regards,
