I am trying to use a linear guide for a door in a vacuum chamber. It is aluminum with a clear hard anodize surface. The pressure of the chamber will be 3x10-5 Torr and Temp. will be 150F. I was told not to use anodized aluminum because of its porosity but it doesn't make much sense to me. I believe the guide should be fine in the chamber. Any comments?
