Hardcoat anodizing is an electrochemical procedure for producing a hard, dense, corrosion resistant coating of aluminum oxide on most aluminum alloys. Keystone's Hardcoat combines the advantages of aluminum's light weight, machineability and low cost with surface hardness approaching that of case hardened steel.
Keystone Hardcoat offers high dielectric strength and may be sealed with fluorocarbons to provide lower frictional properties.
Keystone offers the following processes for hardcoating aluminum and its alloys:
Hardcoat anodizing has proved invaluable in countless industrial and military applications. Your designers can select the alloy characteristics you require and then specify Keystone Hardcoat for finishing. Some traditional uses of Keystone Hardcoat include:
