Default Deanodizing Heat sink??

Has anyone ever tried to deanodize the Ice75s Heat sink? Is it easy to remove the heat sink from the ESC?

Ok to deanodizing de aluminium you must be done a solution of caustic soda with whater (1/1 relation), in a 3 or 4 minutes de anodizing surface must be out of aluminium heat sink. Be careful with the soda because causes skin burns.

The anodize coating keeps it from shorting out the two sides of the circuit board. You must make sure that itís insulated from where it contacts the board and make sure that you still have good heat transfer. If you are not careful everything will go up in flames and the warranty will be void.
