HI All,

Many waterbaths, like the old Technicon waterbaths and others have an
aluminum pan so heating to make them black won't work. Oxidation of the
aluminum causes the bottom to turn greenish grey.

It is well known, that any steel things will
become black, need heat it up to red, then dip in
mineral oil and cool here. After such procedures
this black colour possible to take away only long
polish with abrasive.
