Anodizing aluminum

we welded 6061-T6 aluminum with 4043 filler wire to only find out that it turns black when anodizing it. Is there anything we can do now short of cutting it apart and starting over to get it so it does not turn black?


I am not aware of anything that will fix the problem....other than removing the surface layer of weld and rewelding with 5356
