What exactly are you looking for. They don't normally anodize steel.

I'm looking for blue M3 X 28mm hex screws for the frame on my Caliber. I was told however that they don't make aluminum screws longer than 20mm. They are more prone to stress fractures due to its (aluminums) relative strength and surface area.

Thanks,

Balbs

They dye and oxidize steel but it's generally a dark color. Plating can offer a couple other options.

I'm thinking that for a blue color you're looking at aluminum alloys
