Reliant Aluminum Products' Sanodure Grey R Liquid is the newest addition to the company’s line of Sanodure fade-resistant indoor colors for aluminum. A concentrated Azo dye that produces pewter shades that do not flare under incandescent light, it possesses good light fastness and is stable to color shifting over time. According to the company, its slow strike rate, even at higher concentrations, facilitates uniform coloring of the load. Recommended application temperatures for Sanodure Grey R Liquid are 120-160° F. Preferred sealing methods include using Anodal ASL or Anodal AS (hot nickel acetate sealants), Anodal MS-1 New or Anodal Mid-Temp (mid-temperature nickel acetate sealants) and Anodal CS-2N or Anodal CS-2 (room temperature nickel fluoride sealants). It can be applied within a pH range of 5.0-6.0 and requires the addition of a sodium acetate based stabilizer such as Anodal dye buffer liquid.
