You are correct Bill, the surface is non-conductive to the extent that
static would build up depending on the product being transported and could
be a real problem to electronic equipment in close proximity.  I was
thinking more towards radials as you noted.  There used to be some very long
lengths of scrap around which I wish I had stashed now:(

As I understand it, anodizing leaves the surface non-conductive,
unlike chromate conversion. This might be ok for radials, however.
