Ideal for anodizing niobium and titanium, this solid state micro anodizer is powerful and easy to use, with precision controls that deliver the results you're looking for. Voltage is variable from 0--120 volts, enabling you to create the entire rainbow of colors that niobium and titanium are capable of achieving. Whether you are anodizing in production batches or working with one-of-a-kind designs, this machine delivers the power, control and reliability you need. This anodizer includes:
• Two sets of color-coded leads
• One stainless steel cathode
• One sheet of Spark Guard Mesh
• Complete instructions
As a special bonus, this anodizer also includes a free copy of "Studio Preparation and Coloring of Titanium" by Bill Seeley, owner and founder of Reactive Metals Studio in Arizona and a pioneer in the use of reactive metals such as titanium and niobium.
Please note: Anodizing reactive metals should not be confused with anodizing aluminum; the processes are completely different. Anodizing reactive metals is a high-voltage, low-amp process using non-toxic electrolytes.
