Integral Color (discontinued) vs. 2-step
At SAF, we perform the 2-step process. We have discontinued the Integral Color (Duranodic) process. Here are a few differences between the two processes.
Integral Color (Duranodic) DISCONTINUED
- Harder coat (more dense) than 2-step.
- Generally a thicker coat than 2-step unless Class I 2-step is specified.
- Single step process.
- Hides welds a little better than 2-step
- Does not craze when fabricated as badly as Integral Color.
Color is independent of coating thickness.
In general, more anodizers use the 2-step process.
