Anodizing Process Summary

Anodizing Aluminum is summarized in Anodizing aluminum is a process to cover aluminum surface with oxide film of anodized aluminum. How to make color on the aluminum layer is a sequence process of each step on anodizing process. Coloring agent to make this layer can use chemicals agent or by reaction of certain chemicals with aluminum surface. The process of anodizing itself using several process in sequence, such as below:
  1. Electropolishing of Aluminum: the process to make an old oxide film that already available in aluminum surface should be removed before the process of anodizing being started. 
  2. Alkaline solution treatment: this process also have similar purpose like electropolishing, but on this process is used chemical solution to open the oxide film. Some other purpose of anodizing process can use other chemical substances. 
  3. Rinsing: rising is a process that done in between of each process. Rising by fresh water is needed to make the surface of aluminum is clean and free from chemicals. 
  4. Jigging: Jigging is extended process of rinsing by using of some solvent to clean the surface of aluminum. Some organic solvent can use to clean the surface of aluminum such as benzene or aceton if needed. 
  5. The next process is anodizing process. Anodizing process is doing under DC electric current in chemical solution. Bath solution on this process usually use sulfuric acid, but other purpose may use other kind of chemical solution. 
  6. Racking and rinsing: after process of anodizing, then the object is being rinsing again and racking to make the object dry. 
  7. Sealing and coloring: To make the surface of anodizing produce look interesting, this process is very important. First process of this step is coloring first can use dyeing agent from textile dyeing agent or use chemical that will react with chemicals that already stay on aluminum surface. For reaction method should doing in two step in order make coloring after reaction. After coloring of aluminum surface then the pore of aluminum surface is being closed by dipping in boiling water for several minutes. 
  8. Polishing after anodized: the polishing process is apply to anodized aluminum involves the production of finishes resembling bronze, brass, gold, silver and their alloy. In such cases of suitable coloring materials, an important part is played by conditioning and preparation of the surface of the metal part to anodizing.

Welding Steel

As we know that welding is to make steel stick each others like gluing metal to metal using welding electrode. Not all kind of steel can be welded each other, each steel have their own steel weld ability to measure the ability to weld. Welding operators should know the type of steel to be welded so they can setting the suitable ampere and time to weld steel to steel. The welding ability have their own standard of each steel. More easier of steel to be welded have more less weld ability, higher weld ability more difficult to be welded.

Carbon steel have higher welded ability than stainless steel, because carbon steel more contain of carbon while stainless steel have more contain of metal on their steel composition. After we know the characteristic of each element that compose of each type of steel then we can predict the weld ability even we don't use weld ability table to do this job. Experience welding operator can setting the amperage of welding, type of welding electrode and tim…

Mau beli barang elektronik murah

Di jaman sekarang ini sudah sangat mudah buat mencari barang yang harganya murah tetapi kualitasnya sama dengan yang ada karena mereknya sudah dikenal. Bukan barang dengan merek baru dan belum dikenal jelas sulit untuk mengetahui kualitas barangnya. Kalau mereknya sudah diketahui maka kualitasnya kira kira ya sama lah dengan aslinya. Dengan adanya penjualan online sekarang ini kita bisa liat liat barang melalui layar kaca dan gak perlu harus jalan ke mal dan mengeluarkan banyak ongkos buat jalan. Kita bisa cek dulu harga barang online dan lihat stoknya masih ada apa tidak, karena sering terjadi mereka hanya memasang iklan murah tanpa stok barang jadi percuma walaupun harganya murah tapi tidak bisa buat bandingan.

Toko online yang sudah terkenal seperti E-bay dan yang dari Indonesia seperti Tokopedia dan Buka lapak, sudah memajang barang barang elektronik lengkap dengan spek dan harganya, maka kita tidak perlu lagi ngecek ngecek harga di Mal. Bahkan kita bisa tahu toko apa yang jual on…

Epoxy Adhesive

Epoxy Adhesive as Steel Glue can be applied in many thing, use in metal or in plastic. Epoxy compounds are designed withstand to exposure and hostile environmental condition. This adhesive can be applied in craft, automobile, optical, medical, chemical process, electronics and many other industries. Some epoxy adhesive products can be formulated to meet specific application requirements. Different with wood adhesive, steel adhesive can be provide in two kind product.

Epoxy Steel glue one component have latent curing to make this glue can be kept in tube or in other kind of packing. This steel glue already mixed with hardener but by adding some solvent for this mixing make this mixing are not reacted. After the solvent is vapor expoxy resin and hardener will react as usual become hard compound use as steel glue. Steel glue in one component is more simple to use, no need to formulate first or mixing first. Steel glue in one component can be provide in liquid, paste, and solid forms. Cur…
