Taber Abrasion Testing ResultsTest Results of Abrasion Resistance

High Temperature Fade Resistance

We received the image and the feedback below from a customer, regarding their test of the fade resistance of our black dye (middle). Anodized Part - Black Dye

“Congratulations! Your anodized parts held color better than the competitiors! I put them in the oven for 1 hour at 300 degrees, then 1 hour at 350 degrees, then 3-4 hours at 450 degrees.”

UV Fade Resistance

6 months of 24/7 UV exposure resulted in negligible color shift in black, blue, gold, and orange dyes used by Sapphire Metal Finishing. As is expected, red dye shows significant color shift. We have yet to test other colors.
