Default Anodizing over Alodine?

I have done some web searches and am having a hard time finding a definitive answer.

I love the gold color you get from alodineing but i want to be able to have a little more resilience to the elements so i am wondering if you can do clear anodizing over alodine or if it has to be the other way around. I know that alodine coating is very conductive but dont know if it will anodize. and i would hate to spend $75 on stuff that i may or may not use.

if anybody is interested in getting parts alodined let me know and it may make it more worth my while.

any info helps
thanks

Default Re: Anodizing over Alodine?

I'd suspect they are incompatible ; both are reactions of the surface. Anno depends on producing a thin laer of aluminum oxide (and maybe filling the pores in the oxide structure with dye) while it looks like alodine deposits a layer of some other metal on the surface(?). Can't see how you could do both.

Gold anno isn't uncommon though, so why not just use that if you want the hardness of anno?

And yeah, I might be interested. I've got my clutch cover pulled and plan on using gold / yellow accents on the bike. Was planning to laser etch it, would very much like to up the contrast by coloring it first.

Not quite as slick as the case cover you machined, but was what I had planned.
