  • Anodize sealing

    I have a couple of questions about the dye process.

    1)What is the reason for the dye to be 140 degrees?
    2) Can I just turn up the temp and boil the dye and use it to seal also(I am boiling to seal right now)?

    Thanks for your help!

    Good Question

    I was wondering this to after reading the manual on page 140 on airbrushing the dye on. Now how would this be done, as you cannot airbrush in 140-degree heat.

    Is it really necessary to apply it at that temperature?

    If not, is the airbrush application inferior?

    I found the manual very informative, but I didn’t see too much in the way of applying the dyes with the different methods listed.

    Can you give me more information on this Caswell?

    Thanks
    Bill

      Also ....

      I went to NAPA's web page and they did not have Acid listed on there site (search engine).

      Do they still carry it?
      Were is there another sorce for it?

      Thanks

        Our supplier specifies this heat as optimum.
        NAPA acid = prod # 9002 Try any battery supplier.

        Sealing in the dye isn't in the procedure. You could try it - but don't complain if it doesn't work.

        Airbrushing will result in the possibility of a weaker color. You may need to increase the concentration to counter this.
