Avoid corrosion, patchy surfaces and discoloration

Learn best practices for storage, handling and pretreatment in Aluminum Anodizing

As Anodizers we focus a lot on the actual Anodizing step. But so much can go wrong before you put your aluminum parts into the tank and start the process. 

If you don’t do handling, racking and pretreatment right you increase the risk of corrosion, patchy surfaces and an uneven coloring later on.

In these two modules you get Anne Deacon Juhls best practices for handling, racking and pretreatment - based on +25 years of experience consulting Anodizers all over the world.

The modules help you:

✓ Avoid corrosion during or because of transport, storage, unpacking and before racking.

✓ Choose the optimal materials for racking.

✓ Create the right surface for Anodizing i pretreatment, so you get the best results for your Anodized Aluminum.

✓ Troubleshoot the pretreatment steps and get it done faster (without being dependent on your chemical supplier).

  • Is this a beginners course or can I benefit from it as an experienced Anodizer?

    The handling/racking and pretreatment module is a great place to start if you are just beginning your adventure with Anodizing, BUT there is plenty of knowledge there for experiences Anodizers too.

    Like all professionals, some Anodizers will begin or forget to do things in their process, so you can definitely benefit from some reminders and likely also some new knowledge you didn’t have beforehand.
