Chromic anodize is a thin opaque film that may be applied as a pretreatment to painting to enhance adhesion. A big advantage of the chromic anodize is that it does not lower the fatigue strength of the aluminum, nor does it damage the base material if it is entrapped in lap joints or blind holes. A typical thickness is usually 0.00005-0.0001 inches.

More corrosion and fatigue resistant than sulfuric acid anodizing, chromic acid anodizing offers a solution that is flexible and durable for industries requiring a more specific treatment than offered by sulfuric or hardcoat anodizing. Chromic anodize produces a very thin layer of coating that is strong yet pliant, making it a perfect solution for products that demand a little more flex. Type 1 anodize is commonly used in aerospace and defense in aluminum parts that must respond to great amounts of pressure. The thinner the coat, the more fatigue resistance, which makes type 1 anodizing a great fit for products that depend on both ultimate durability and flexibility.
