  • How much does home brew type 2 anodizing improve corrosion resistance???

    I finally got my magic tax stamp from the BATFE and am about halfway through building a .22 caliber suppressor. Whoopie!!

    Due to the various legal technicalities, once I finish the suppressor, I can't make new baffles to replace damaged, eroded or corroded ones. Unless of course I pay another $200 tax stamp...

    Thus...

    I am thinking about anodizing my 6011 aluminum baffles and tube to add corrosion resistance. This would be type II anodizing, using dilute sulfuric acid and a typical battery charger/power supply. Nothing too exotic. Worth it? Or not worth it?

    Any clever tricks to improve the lifespan of my baffles?

    finest regards,
