    1. Do the anodized layers that firearm manufacturers use on their aluminum frames compare to an anodized finish I would get from using one of your anodization kits, or are they "hard anodized"

    "Hard anodizing' is really a misnomer. All anodizing is very hard, by changing the acid concentration you can make a slightly harder surface, but this is not suitable for dying.

    2. Can you matte electroless nickel using zincate on top of an anodized layer of such a part and retain strength? If so, how thick would this new zincate/nickel layer be?

    Anodize is an insulator, therefore you can't plate on top of it.

    3. How well would a person prepare an anodized surface for application of Teflon? I was thinking using a light pressure blast, just enough to scuff up the surface

    What are you trying to do here? Why do you need the teflon surface?
    We will be bringing out a new EN system shortly. Watch the web page for details.


    Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

    I was wondering about how to refinish such an item.
