Hard Anodising

We offer Hard Anodising to BS 5599 standards in blue or black.

Overview: Ideal for the production of hard wear-resistant surfaces on aluminium for aircraft and general engineering uses. Typical examples include cylinder bores, hydraulic & pneumatic piston surfaces, gears, pulleys, racks and cams.

Standard Thickness
Def Stan 151-3 25-50µm
Def 03-26 25-50µm
BS 5599 25-50µm

Key Strengths: Key strengths of hard anodising include:

Limitations: There are a number of limitations associated with Sulphuric Anodising:

Applications: Machinery, hydraulics and tooling.

Surface Growth: There is an increase in dimension or surface growth of between 38 and 50% of the applied film thickness which must be allowed for at the design stage.

Tanks: We offer tank sizes up to 8' x 5' x 3'.

Thickness: Standard coating thickness is up to 75µm.

Finish: Gunpowder Grey.

Selective Finishing: Masking can be undertaken to restrict the hard anodising to the waer resistant surfaces such as cylinder bores. This process usually involves the sulphuric or chromic anodising of the non critical areas with the stopping off of the areas to be hard anodised. This process is then repeated with the asking reversed.

Fast Turn Around: We offer a fast turn around because of the large size of our tanks.

Jigging: Correct jigging is essential to the resulting finish, and good jig points are required, a consideration that should be made at the design stage of a component. The use of loose, sliding or intermittent contacts will result in an unsatisfactory connection and give rise to faults such as thin coatings, burning at the contact points or even failure to obtain an anodised coating.
