Troy Brosnan's Crankworx Edition Demo 8 - Whistler 2016
@schofell84: type III hard ano is that "dull gold" color typical of quality aluminum stanchions. Some cheap stanchions are simply steel with a type of black oxide to keep it from rusting or chrome plating. Aluminum stanchions can be plated with nickel (Marzocchi), or hard anodized and then top coated with kashima, secret black stuff, or other secret espresso stuff (fox, rs, marzocchi).... There's lots of ways to skin a cat but type III hard ano forms the base for the aluminum stanchions because it toughens up the material so it can take the wear of seals and bushings running on them. This is all at least my understanding....a lot of these treatments are pretty proprietary and secretive so it's possible they are combining them into single treatments.

@schofell84: it's my understanding that type III can be colored to an extent but it doesn't produce the bright, popping colors of type II. It often ends up dull and thin. Plus there's an "industrial cool" to the natural color of type III that a lot of manufacturers play on for sure.

@stacykohut: I would assume they would have to as the difference is pretty significant (.002" vs .0006 I've seen listed) but the thickness can be controlled to a degree as well. Precision machined surfaces are not usually anodized for this reason (i.e. pressed bearing bores, etc..)

@stacykohut: thanks bro, nice to let out all this crap in my brain and let others use it once in awhile... FYI, type III Is also significantly thicker than type II which is another reason it's so tough.

Renthal's color is the result of using type III hard anodizing on all their parts opposed to type II used on most others. Type III is much harder than type II and cannot be colored to the same effect as type II. Type III is what you see on fork stanchions prior to any surface coating. I'll take tougher ano over pretty colors any day.
