Brite Dip 8 EL is a mixture of acids and additives blended in the proper proportions to produce a bright reflective surface on wrought aluminum alloys by immersion.
Not all alloys are suitable for bright dipping. In general, the high purity alloys (1100 series), the high strength alloys (5357, 5457, etc.) and the extrusion alloys (6061, 6063, 6463) can all be brightened to some extent, although secularity will depend upon the exact alloy.
Note: Cast aluminum and high silicon alloys are unsuitable for bright dipping.
