Anodic Treatment of Aluminum Alloys, Sulfuric Acid Process, Undyed Coating
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification establishes the engineering requirements for producing undyed anodic coatings on aluminum alloys and the properties of such coatings.
This process has been used typically to increase corrosion resistance and to provide surfaces which will promote adherence of paint and other organic finishes, but usage is not limited to such applications.
AMS 2472 should be specified for coatings colored by dyeing. This process is not suitable for parts which contain joints or recesses in which the anodizing solution may be retained.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The committee of Finishes, Processes, and Fluids, AMS Committee B, shall prepare, coordinate, and revise documents related to processing technology, such as plating, brazing, coatings and compounds, through the participation of process suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace processes.
