Many different chemicals are used to supply the Ti, and the chemicals used will supply it in different proportions causing different thicknesses and in-turn the pretty colors.

That is how PVD works.


Also as mentioned by someone previously about electroplating Ti. The biggest issue with that is the face that Redox potential of Titanium is so much higher than Al that it makes it almost impossible to get a Ti layer on the outside of Al using electrochemistry.
I think what he was saying is that with PVD you could plate Ti onto Al, which you could then anodize. Which you could do, its just not aurora. PVD, its standard use, that is, would give you a very thin, very even coating. But it can be manipulated to give you an uneven coating.
And yeah, it would be very hard to electroplate Ti.

oil slick is just an anno. aurora is an actual plating and it changes color dependent on the viewing angle.

Oil slick is neither aurora or anodizing. It is a different process all together. That is if you are referring to the oil slick from Dye.

In other industries, what we call aurora is referred to as an oil slick look.

Only 1 that I know of that ever did it was ODDpb. Don't think they are taking any guns but it looks like they are going to reopen shop. Atleast that is what their site has been making it seem like for almost 2 years.

I'm sorry, but I never said it was aurora either, just that the Oil Slick Dye was doing was not Anodizing.

Lopez as far as I know they are no longer doing Aurora finishes. I am sure you could find someone outside the paintball world if you looked around.

I didn't know we had a thread for this! Well I sold my Aurora SL74 to a guy in England so just thought I'd let people know I don't currently own it anymore.

I do miss it

Would the process be easier on a piece if ti, such as a ti dye ul barrel back? I would like to have it done to my ti ul if possible.

Theres lots of little shops that can do aurora just not paintball related shops. ODDpb will charge you an arm and a leg because aurora is supposedly uber hard to do. Just google pvd and look for companies that take single one off jobs. Some will charge considerably less than others so look around. If aurora was a hard and expensive as some would have us believe we wouldn't have $8 scissors and $20 zippo aurora lighters.
