    AAA Bond to anodize

    Does anyone know if AAA bonds just fine w/ anodized aluminum?

    Just trying to see if I need to strip the parts first or leave them as is.

    I also have access to Loctite #384, but this doesn't sound like it is as good for a strong bond although it is thermally conductive.

    I have a tube of arctic silver adhesive that bonds just fine to anodized aluminum tubing.

    In my experience I have found that it bonds better as an anodized surface will be free from corrosion, it is also a rougher surface wich will help it bond.

    Most PC heatsinks are anodized and that is what arctic stuff is designed for.

    I think it will work just fine, I think being clean of oils is most important
