and anodizing shops still use lead line tanks and use the Sheet lead liners for anodes, to conduct the electric required for plating and anodizing.

6% antimonial sheet lead is used in Anodizing tanks because the lead is hard and conducts the cool 72 degrees temperature needed for the anodizing process. 6% antimonial lead pipe cooling coils are used to chill the acid.
