light metals process manual
A Review by Ted Mooney

Broad ranging coverage of aluminum finishing, covering mechanical finishing, racking, cleaning, anodizing, coloring, and sealing. Addresses troubleshooting, safety, QA, process control, design of the line, aluminum cathodes, and recovery of wastes.

Also chapters on electroplating, conversion coatings, organic finishing, powder coating, and porcelain enamel.

Includes a short chapter on magnesium finishing.

A very "accessible", "hands-on" treatment of the subject.

Very hard to find!

If you can't find it, consider Robert Probert's "Aluminum How-To". It's not the same thing, but the style and depth are at least along the same lines.
