Galvanisation process on 400-5198-01X PSU

Post by erzane »

Hi there,
I was planning to repaint my New Astro's PSU but I suddenly heard about a galvanisation process used to cover these kind of shells sheltering some electronics and exposed to constant heat. I heard they are usually covered with a specific film which gives a black color to the shell. This black colour becomes brown with time. This could explain why these New Astro PSUs are now brown.
The purpose of this topic is to find out if this degradation also happened to the New Astro's PSUs. I guess yes but I'd like your opinion and to collect your experience on this. If the experience is concluant, I'm planing to apply that process (called galvanisation, or blackening) to my shell instead of repainting it by the usual way.
Thanks.
