Specs for hardcoat Anodizing


Q. I am into blackened anodizing, can you please inform me with the American hardcoat standards, Mil-A-8625 [link is to free spec at Defense Logistics Agency,] type III and AMS2469 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] (wear test) and also the European hardcoat standards, ISO 10074 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] and BS 5599 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] as soon as possible.

A. Hi, Gerald. We've linked your inquiry to sources of those standards to help you buy them; with the exception of the Mil spec, these are all copyrighted specifications and cannot be copied for you -- according to international copyright law you must buy your own copies. Good luck.

A. Mil-A-8625 [link is to free spec at Defense Logistics Agency,]F Type III is recognized and used all over the world for hardcoat anodizing. A survey of International Hardcoat Anodizing Association (IHAA) members found ISO 10074 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] as the only other specification widely used outside of the United States.
