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

Camarillo, CA • April 2018 – Wilwood 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, CA.

Type III Mil-Spec hard anodizing replaces Type II black anodizing as the standard finish on all base and powder coat finish caliper models. 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.

“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,” said Bill Wood, owner of Wilwood Engineering.
