USER BENEFITS for MIL-A-8625 SULFURIC ANODIZE
Thickness callout, rule, and industry standard with Anodize
Hard Coat Anodize: Also known as Type III Anodize
Hard Coat Anodize is mainly used for wear applications. It is not as corrosion resistant as Type II, which is also known as standardsulfuric anodize. Type III Hard Coat is more difficult to run and requires better controls and processing parameters.
Ti – Anodize, Custom Colors, All Colors & Gray, and AMS 2488
Black, Gray, Color ( Titanium Oxide film is created, Process with a lower pH of 13, and creates a thicker and better oxide.)
AMS 2488 Titanium anodize was developed for the Aerospace industry. Techmetals can certify to this specification and is Nadcap approved for chemical processing of Ti-anodizing. We run parts for companies like Bell Helicopter, Northup, and others.
MedaDize is our Titanium Anodize process that is validated and used for medical applications for both color and gray.
Chem-Film, Alodine, and Iridite are just some trade-names used for the chem-film process
Main industry Specifications: MIL-C-5541, AMS 2473, MIL-DTL-5541 (Standard), MIL-DTL-5541 (Hex Free)
OXYTECH is formed by an electrochemical reaction in sulfuric acid and other catalysis that have been added. This process is Techmetals modified Hard Coat process, which provides a harder aluminum oxide ceramic layer than what is producedby MIL-A-8625 Type III.
The coating can be sealed (a process that closes the porosity) for maximum corrosion protection or can be left unsealed for maximum abrasion resistance.
Thickness: .0008-.003 for OXYTECH on most alloys
Hardness: 65-70 Rockwell
Corrosion Resistance: >336 hours per ASTM B-117
Dielectric Resistance: 1000V per .001″ coating thickness
Colors: Any shade that we have a dye for or made
Seals: Best is sealed after processing.
OXYLUBE is our modified Hard Coat process that is infused with Teflon for release in cooking and baking applications. It is also used in industrial molding to help reduce wear and provide mold release.
