b'Clear-anodized Torlon thermoplasticClear aluminum anodizing is an electrochemical process thatExceptionally strong crush/impact-resistant bearing material thatproduces a corrosion-resistantnish. It also hardens the surface,withstands heavy long-term use and shock loading. Most Harken making components less prone to scratches and dents.
