Can someone please let me know in plain English what "Clear Anodized" means in regards to a catch can? I am sorry if this is repeated or a stupid question, but this is very important to me. Please feel free to post pics of a "Clear Anodized" can would look like.

Many Thanks,

As far as I know it's a BT transparent (see through) catch can where you can see the oil accumulating over time. Google image search should find it.

I would imagine clear anodized is the one that is "see thru" As in you can see how much sh!tty oil is in the can...

If u are think of the color then that's just bare metal with clear coat over it. So it won't be polished or blue, red etc. But if u talking about the bottom part of the catch can I would assume the clear see though one

I did not know they made totally see through catch cans (is that some kind of plastic?). Should be way easy to see how full or not it is.

it was a special group buy offered from BT last year. its beautiful upgrade to existing CCs from BT. just screw out the metal bottom for the clear one.

thanks, this was the very first mods weeks after i picked up the SRT8. immediately after installing, a quick 100mile drive- it accumulated some gunk that was spared back to the engine. i dump out the gunk when ever i do an oil change. the clear portion is a hard plastic so be aware of expand and contract with the metal. i only unscrew/screw it back on-- when the engine is cold- solid seal. but thats me.

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing, although other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, also can be anodized.

The anodic oxide structure originates from the aluminum substrate and is composed entirely of aluminum oxide. This aluminum oxide is not applied to the surface like paint or plating, but is fully integrated with the underlying aluminum substrate, so cannot chip or peel. It has a highly ordered, porous structure that allows for secondary processes such as coloring and sealing.

Anodizing is accomplished by immersing the aluminum into an acid electrolyte bath and passing an electric current through the medium. A cathode is mounted to the inside of the anodizing tank; the aluminum acts as an anode, so that oxygen ions are released from the electrolyte to combine with the aluminum atoms at the surface of the part being anodized. Anodizing is, therefore, a matter of highly controlled oxidation—the enhancement of a naturally occurring phenomenon.

So basically "Clear anodizing" is a clear anodize.. Or a clear coat if you will. HAs nothing to do with our clear catch Cans.
