Slickote Teflon Anodize Seal
Slickote PTFE 100
Anoprints are anodizing dyes which are silk screened into unsealed anodized aluminum surfaces to create graphic logos and other color effects. Anoprints are solvent dyes as opposed to water base anodize dyes, dispersed in a solvent system with thickening agents to create a high viscosity. After silk screening, the parts may be dyed and sealed without affecting the printed logo.
