"Faded Anodized Parts"



2000

Over a period of years, (3-5),the black anodizing of housings exposed to the elements fades to a white color. They were anodized to Mil-A-8625 [link is to free spec spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil] Type I. Any help.

Dear Frank,

I would need a little more info, such as alloy and size of the parts. But you might want to try a non fade anodize along the lines of the Aluminum Association Standards & Designations A44.

Thank You,

Chris

Dear Frank

Fading can cause by a very hash corrosive and/or salty atmospheric conditions. Film thickness and the colouring process are contributing factors. Electrolytic colouring process has superior colour fastness as compared to colouring by dye.
