The CompCote® Finishes protect most aluminum alloys

CompCote® finishes work with most common industrial aluminum alloys. Although the polymer additive does serve as a buffer, enhancing finish growth, limitations may occur with highly segregated and inhomogeneous alloy microstructures, as with any anodizing process. Highly alloyed materials such as hyper-eutectic castings and lead and copper bearing alloys may exhibit slower finish growth, thinner maximum finish thickness and irregular surface topography.
