Wilwood Disc Brakes Brings Type III Mil-Spec Hard Anodizing In-House

Wilwood Engineering has completed the construction of an EPA and California compliant anodizing facility, bringing full production and quality control over all aspects of the caliper manufacturing process in-house to its 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 for Wilwood Disc Brakes. This process is said to produce a thicker, harder surface with a rich, medium-gray appearance.

The new process is also said to create a more durable wear surface in the piston bores, with increased resistance to abrasion and corrosion over the entire external surface of the caliper.

“This major investment and undertaking is a testament to Wilwood’s ongoing commitment to providing the highest level of service and quality components to our customers,” Wilwood Engineering Owner Bill Wood said.
