Aluminium Conversion Coating
(Incorporating Alocrom 1000, 1200, non-chromate Iridite NCP and SurTec® 650)
The component will firstly be thoroughly cleaned, degreased and mildly etched prior to this process commencing.
The treatment chosen is then applied by either brush or swab to localised areas or by immersion if required for the entire component. Once applied or immersed the process will take up to 5 mins to create a thin, clear or gold coloured, protective film across the component or area treated.
The component is then rinsed initially in cold clean running water for 30 seconds, followed by a hot rinse across within a weakened treatment solution for 15-30 seconds.
The technician will then make a final inspection to make sure the component or area treated has an even clear or gold coloured coating.
For customers that require a non-chromate conversion coating to satisfy the requirements of the RoHS and WEEE directives, we offer SurTec® 650 or Iridite NCP which produces a clear surface coating with corrosion resistance of up to 1000 salt spray hours using ASTM B117.
Iridite NCP is also temperature resistant making it suitable for high temperature operating environments such as automotive engine components and electronic heat sinks, as well as offering excellent adhesion to paints, sealants and adhesives.
