Hardcoat anodize is specified for aluminum components subject to extreme wear applications where superior abrasion resistance is needed, or corrosive environments where a thicker, harder, more durable coating is necessary.

Hardcoat Anodize can also be valuable where enhanced electrical insulation is required. Since Hardcoat can be built up to several thousandths in, it also makes this type of anodize a candidate for salvaging worn or mis-machined components.
