The Following link gives a brief insight to anodizing and dying,

www.caswellplating.com.au/anodizing.html

These professional quality anodizing dyes provide consistent,  quality results. 

The same dyes are sold to professional anodizing shops  all over the world. 

You will now find some of the more commonly used colours being supplied as a powder.

Their mixing instructions are on their labels and are usually for a small dye to add to 8 litres of distilled water

and for the large dye to add to 30 litres of distilled water.

If they are supplied in bottles each 120mL bottle of dye concentrate makes 7.5 L.  

Each anodizing kit is supplied with a color wheel. 

Dyes can be mixed together to create a host of different colors.

To make up different colors,  we suggest that you make up the colors to the correct dilution first,

then take a quantity of each dye and blend them together.  

These colors are approximate.

The finish will normally have a more 'metallic'  look, and will vary slightly depending

on the alloy and surface preparation.

Procedure for Obtaining Dyed Anodize 

Anodize the aluminum at Room Temperature for 90 minutes at  4.5 amps per 900 sq cm or 0.03 amps per 6.5 sq cm. 

Use our Anodizing Kit. 

After thorough rinsing, immerse the part in the  dye at a temperature of 60°C for 15 minutes. Check the label as some dyes may have different instructions. 

Finally, seal by hanging the part in a sealer bath for 15 minutes. 

Note: All dyes are suitable for high temp and low temp sealants,  except Grey BL and Yellow 4A which should

not be sealed using LT Sealer.
