SANFRAN® Sulfuric Electrolyte Additive An essential ingredient for both Low Voltage and CLASSIC hard coat rectification, SANFRAN® is a fully organic, non-toxic, and RoHS compliant additive to the electrolyte chemistry in Sulfuric Acid Anodizing that protects the aluminum from burning while reducing energy consumption. Used at 5% concentration of the electrolyte volume.
SANFORD HARDLUBE™ TEFLON / PTFE Impregnate Used as part of the sealing process for Sulfuric Acid Anodizing, HARDLUBE™ reduces the coefficient of friction on the coating surface and provides for easier release as well as increases corrosion resistance.
ANTI-FOAMER Sulfuric Electrolyte Additive

Our anti-foamer solution dramatically suppresses foam in the electrolyte tank without impairing coating properties.
