Anodizing Services

This specification covers the requirements for six types and two classes of electrolytically formed anodic coatings on aluminum and aluminum alloys for non-architectural applications (read more)

Sulfuric Anodizing (Type II) is performed by submerging the component in a room temperature sulfuric acid bath for 30 to 60 minutes. Some benefits are:

  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Abrasion Reistance
  • Electrical Resistance
  • All Colors Available
    For Sulfuric Anodizing we adhere to:
  • AMS 2472: Anodic Treatment of Aluminum Allo...

Hardcoat Anodizing (Type III) is performed by submerging the component in an acid bath electrolyte solution. The anodic oxide build up actually penetrates the part or component as much as it builds up on the surface. Some benefits are:

  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Abrasion Reistance
  • Electrical Resistance
  • For Hardcoat Anodizing we adhere t...

Chromic Acid Anodize is the accelerated oxidation of an aluminum surface. The natural thin oxide layer on aluminum prevents some corrosion. The layer can be thickened by the Chromic Acid Anodizing process. This alteration provides even greater scratch and corrosion protection.


All Chromic Acid Anodizing processes are performed manually to ensure the proper care is g... (read more)

The magnetic particle examination method is used to detect cracks, laps, seams, inclusions, and other discontinuities on or near the surface of ferromagnetic materials. (read more)

By pelting the component repeatedly with steel, glass, or ceramic shot, we can increase the fatigue life. The process creates a compressed surface layer which removes any microscopic cracks that could later cause fatigue failure. (read more)

Hardness testing determines the material's resistance to platic (permanent) deformation. Conductivity Testing defines a material's ability to allow the flow of electrons through its lattice structure.

We offer both Hardness and Conductivity testing for material verification. We employ various methods such as:

We offer the follwoing Hardness Tests:

Liquid penetrant examination processes are applicable to in-process, final, and maintenance (in-service) inspections. (read more)

Surface Preparation Services

Aerospace Defense Coatings can clean or prepare your part for a future process in many different ways. Please review their extensive list of process approvals. Chemical Cleaning, Abrasive Cleaning, Cleaning for Electroplating, Deburring and Finishing, Etch Cleaning, Stripping of Organic and Inorganic Finishes, Surface Treatment. (read more)

Passivating steel removes all impurities from the part or component and creates a hard non-reactive surface film that inhibits further corrosion. (read more)

Plating Services

The naturally lubricated nature of cadmium lends itself to many cycles of disassembly and re-assembly.

This specification has been approved by the Commissioner, Federal Supply Service, General Services Administration, for use by all Federal Agencies.

Cadmium plating provides excellent corrosion resistance with a minimum thickness added to the part. The finish provide... (read more)

Cadmium plating provides excellent corrosion resistance with a minimum thickness added to the part. The finish provides a good base for application of paint, as well as providing a decorative finish. (read more)
