Above are the UV proof electrical dye application process that imbeds many shades of brown, to very dark brown, to brownish sand color, and brownish tan color onto aluminum parts.  Once applied, the color is imbedded and can never be removed.   These brownish shaded of brown color are permanent and if you left the part out in the Sahara Desert for a year, you would see very little fade to NO fade in color.   Dye CANNOT be removed or stripped once they are applied.  We offer this specialty dyeing process to your anodizng system and you can apply any of the colors above or below to you part.  This dyeing process is UV proof and cannot be stripped once it has been applied.  It is PERMANENT.

Above is permanent dye process information about the electrical dye process that was added in 2018.  The anodizing system was installed in 2006 and it is described below.  Tony loved the new 30 shades of brown dyeing process so much that he stopped using conventional dye for all colors except for Black, blue, and red.  

THIS IS A COMMERCIAL ANODIZING SHOP.  IT IS SET UP TO DO DECORATIVE ANODIZING ON CUSTOM CNC MACHINED RACE CAR PARTS THAT NEEDS A MATTE AND SEMI BRIGHT FINISH ON THEM.  IT CONSIST OF A 16 TANK LINE AND NUMEROUS DRUMS AS EXTRA RINSE TANKS.  THE SHOP IS LOCATED IN A SMALL 1200 SQUARE FEET BUILDING.  IT HAS A CLOSED LOOP WASTE TREATMENT SYSTEM THAT TREATS ALL RINSE WATER WASTE IN HOUSE.  THIS MEANS THERE IS NO DISCHARGE INTO PUBLIC WASTE WATER SEWERS WHICH NEGATES ANY NEED FOR A COUNTY SEWER PERMIT.   THE WATER IS SENT INTO THE STORAGE TANK LOCATED BEHIND THE LINE,  THEN THE WATER IS EVAPORATED INTO RAW SLUDGE AND STORED IN A CHEMICAL DRUM UNTIL THE DRUM IS FILLED.   THE WASTE IS THEN PICKED UP BY AN OUTSIDE CONTRACTOR FOR DISPOSAL.
