Sealing quality affect the anti-corrosion performance & surface appearance of anodized coating on aluminum


How does the sealing quality affect the anti-corrosion performance and surface appearance of anodized coating on aluminum?

If the parts are poorly sealed the corrosion resistance is not very good as well. Test sealing by ink test. Put a blob of writing ink on the part and allow to stand for approx. 1 minute. Wash off and see if there is a stain - a small amount of rubbing with a cloth can be used and a mild cleaner. If the parts are poorly sealed you will have a stain you can not remove.

If your anodized parts are not well sealed, the surface itself become sticky. If the surface is well sealed, the anti-corrosion properties increases to a some degree.
