TYPE 3 HARDCOAT ANODIZING

Hardcoat anodize is the most durable anodize finish, with wear characteristics comparable to electroless nickel and hard chrome. INCERTEC’s hardcoat anodizing services are ideal for parts that need to withstand heavy usage and extreme conditions without needing to be replaced. The oxide layer is typically a combination of 50% penetration into the aluminum and 50% buildup per surface.

WHY HARDCOAT ANODIZE?

Hardcoat anodizing is a great candidate for high-usage parts and products that will require ultimate durability and corrosion resistance. INCERTEC has years of experience coating parts such as engine pistons, hunting bows, gun parts, and even cookware to withstand extreme temperatures and conditions.

With a hardness of 60-70 on the Rockwell C scale, Type III hardcoat anodize proves to be a superior coating when compared to chrome, ceramic or nickel. The end result is a finish that’s harder than tool steel. While this type of coating is denser than Type II, it won’t add weight to a part, making it a great option for industries like aerospace where weight is a critical factor.
