Anodizing Sealant, AUSEAL MTS
Part Number: AUSEALMTS5L
Auseal MTS is a nickel based sealing process which allows sealing of the anodic film on aluminium and its alloys to be carried out at temperatures of 80 deg C or more.
Unlike previously supplied sealant, this sealant is supplied in liquid form.
AUSEALMTS IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH THE CRYSTAL FORM OF CASWELL SEALER WHICH IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
The quality of the seal produced passes the recognized weight loss test ISO 3210, admittance ISO 2931 & dye spot ISO 2143.
The bottle supplied contains 5 Litres of liquid sealer. We do not expect it ALL to be used in one container, unless you have larger containers than supplied by Caswell Australia.
5L will make approximately 160L of Anodizing Sealant. It is measured by Weight and not by Volume.
Concentration: Make up to between 26 – 30 g/L. Enough Solution has been supplied to make up at 30 g/L
Temperature: 80 deg C (plus)
pH: 5.0 – 6.0
Dipping Times: 1-2 min/micron @ 80 deg C
- Fill tank using deionised water.
- Add the correct amount of Auseal MTS
- Agitate to ensure thorough mixing.
- Check pH and adjust if necessary using acetic acid to decrease pH or diluted ammonia to increase.
The AUSEAL MTS solution is a non-dump solution provided an efficient filtration system is installed. A filter size of 5 microns is suggested.
Tanks and fittings can be made from 316 stainless steel, or use the HDPE buckets as supplied with Caswell Australia's AN1 Anodizing Kit
Avoidance of drag-in from ‘dirty’ rinses will reduce any possibility of bloom and or sealing problems.
Therefore, rinsing in clean water before sealing in Auseal MTS will prolong the life and reduce the filtering required in the tank. Rinsing in clean water after sealing is also recommended.
