Wilwood has completed the construction of an EPA- and California-compliant anodizing facility. The addition brings full production and quality control of all aspects of the caliper manufacturing process in-house to Wilwood headquarters in Camarillo, California.
Type III Mil-Spec hard anodizing replaces Type II black anodizing as the standard finish on all base and powder coat finish caliper models, according ot Wilwood. This process produces a thicker, harder surface with a rich, medium-gray appearance. More importantly, it creates a more durable wear surface in the piston bores, with increased resistance to abrasion and corrosion over the entire external surface of the caliper.
