SANODURE OLIVE BROWN 2R
Sanodure® Olive Brown 2R
Homogeneous, water soluble dyestuff for the adsorptive dyeing of anodised aluminium.
It brownish olive shade makes Sanodure® Olive Brown 2R especially suited for military articles.
However, this olive brown tone is also a particulary interesting main element for various dull shades.
Sanodure® Olive Brown 2R can be used in combination with other Aluminium dyes, e. g. for
imitatimg integrally or electrolytically produced dyeings, and as a favourably-priced alternative for
Only recommended for interior use.
1. Dye-specific Data
Commercial form: fine granules
Chemical character: Azo-dyestuff, metal complex
Density: 600 g/l
Solubility in water: 30 g/l at 20°C
Storage stability: practically unlimited, in closed original containers
Ecotoxicological data: see safety data sheet
2. Application conditions
Concentration, dyeing temperature and time
Concentration Dyeing temperature Dyeing time
Bright shades 0.05 - 0.2 g/l 25 - 60°C 10 - 20 min
Medium shades 0.3 - 0.8 g/l 25 - 60°C 10 - 20 min
Dark shades 1.0 - 3.0 g/l 25 - 60°C 20 - 30 min
pH: 5,5 ± 0,5
Buffer: The dyebaths are preferably buffered with
8 g/l sodium acetate trihydrate
+ 0,4 ml/l acetic acid for pH 5.6
Water quality: preferably deionized
Sealing: preferably with Anodal® ASL (one or two stage).
3. Setting the Dyebath
When setting the dyebath, care must be taken that the dyestuff is well dissolved. Dissolve the
dye preferably with hot water (80°C) in a separate container (approx. 5 parts water to 1 part
dye). Then this mother solution will be added to the dyebath while stirring.
4. Lightfastness of the Dyeings
Lightfastness of dark dyeings (12 µm): Note 6 (ISO 2135).
5. Special remarks
- Sensitivity to ions
The dyebaths are sensitive to sulphate and aluminium; anodized objects should therefore be
rinsed thoroughly before dyeing.
- Dyeing at room temperature :
At about 20 °C / 68 °F more constant results can be obtained in standing baths than at 60 °C /
140 °F. However, the bath concentration and the dyeing time must be increased accordingly.
- Strippability of dyeings
Unsealed dyeings are virtually unstrippable in diluted nitric or sulphuric acid.
They can be stripped in nitric acid 10 % + potassium permanganate 5 %. After the treatment in
Potassium permanganate, neutralization must be carried out for 1-5 min in a sodium bisulphite
5 % solution.
The following Aluminium dyes are particularly suitable for combinations with Sanodure® Olive
Brown 2R :
Combination element Resulting shade
- Sanodure® Grey NL Liquid - olive grey
- Sanodure® Bronze 2LW - greenish bronze
- Sanodure® Fast Bronze L - reddish bronze
- Sanodal® Black 2LW - anthracite grey
- Prevention of mould formation
An addition of an antimicrobial product can inhibit mould formation for a long time.
We recommend the addition of Nipacide CI 15 (See Technical Information) 25 – 50 mg/l.
6. Disposal of the dyebaths
Spent dyebaths can be readily precipitated with Anodal® WT-1 Liquid. The method is
described in detail in the Technical Information bulletin for Anodal® WT-1 Liquid.
The table below shows the additions required for precipitating Sanodure® Olive Brown 2R.
