CHROMIC ACID ANODIZING (Clear and coloured)
Chromic acid anodizing is an electrochemical process that produces a thin oxide film by controlling the oxidation—and typically applied to aluminum surfaces. At Cadorath, the active ingredient in this special type of anodizing is chromic acid—often used for airplane and flight-critical aluminum components.
ADVANTAGES OF CHROMIC ACID ANODIZING
- Corrosion resistance, especially related to atmospheric and saltwater environments.
- Provides a chemically active surface for painting.
- Excellent bonding properties and corresponding bond strength.
ORIGINS AND DEVELOPMENT
Widely considered to be the first commercial anodizing process, chromic acid anodizing was patented in the early 1920s.
As with many of the anodizing processes, new applications continue to be discovered.
