Some anodisation applications require that the component is not completely anodised, for example when the component in question needs to remain partially conductive after anodising (such as the earthing point on the protective casings of electrical devices). Till now it was only possible to create a conductive point by performing an additional process step.
However, with our enhanced Anodised Partial Plus (HT-C60) process we integrate the creating of a conductive earthing point in the coating process. The potential equalisation point is created during anodising and does not require separate reworking.
The process innovation came about as the result of a special customer requirement from the automotive industry to produce casings for electronic components that regulate and control electrical consumers. The idea for Anodised Partial Plus was promoted and implemented in the course of a development project for small and medium-sized companies.
