Abstract : The patent describes methods for surface polarizing magnesium and its alloys, thus permitting large pieces to be readily anodized using only nominal electric power. Low adhesion, easily strippable film strips are adhered to the pieces, the strips providing areas of exposed metal which allow a high current density to be built up. This produces vigorous electrolytic action for progressively peeling off the films for subsequent anodization of the pieces.
