"Anodize type III clear - sticky"



2000

periodically, complaints of a sticky feel to anodize type III coating have been experienced. this is unacceptable to our customer. inspection at line QC station does not detect this condition. anodize coating is .001"-.002" thick, is clear and unsealed per Mil A 8625. final rinses following anodize solution are: clean water rinse (CWR), CWR and spray rinse. with forced warm air dry. help - any thoughts, suggested cause and corrective action thanks

We do Type III Hardcoat anodize here also, and a sticky feeling is absolutely normal & expected on unsealed Hardcoat.

Pretty simple one to answer...seal the parts. Unsealed anodizing is often very tacky to the touch, especially just after processing.

start to worry if your unsealed hard anodised do not feel tacky especially when the parts are warm & dry as they will suck the moisture out of your fingers & feel tacky
