  • Anodizing Aluminium - Does the type of dye really matters ?

    What Dye to use ? What are my chances if If use an off the shelf dye (like clothing dye from Walmart) ?

    Many people are able to dye successfully using clothing dyes, but many others are not satisfied with the results they receive and prefer a professional anodizing dye.

    Clothing dye is made to dye clothes, anodizing dye is made to dye anodize. It makes sense that the anodizing dye will do a better job.

    Try the clothing dye. If you don't like the results, move up to the anodizing dye.

    And remember that old saying, "Don't spoil the ship for a half penny worth of tar!"
