Type 3 (Mil-A-8625)

Type 3 Hard-Coat Anodizing maybe required in some industries including: Automotive, Military, Aerospace, Telecommunications, Medical and Industrial.

Hard Anodized aluminum is non-conductive to electricity; consequently areas requiring conductivity will need selective masking. Anodize becomes integrated to the part and is qualified for use in salt/corrosive atmospheres. Hard-anodized aluminum products exhibits wear resistance over 10 times that of Type 2 anodize.

CMF’s hard anodize process conforms to Mil-A-8625, ASTM, Military Standards and Customer Specifications for strength and corrosion resistance, and salt-spray testing per ASTM-B117. In addition to clear, we offer hard anodize in colors of: black, blue, red and green.
