Conversion Coating – Alocrom/Alodine
Alocrom (or Alodine in the US) is a Chromate conversion coating that is applied to aluminium alloys, which provides a level of corrosion protection. Alocrom is also good for paint adhesion and is electrically conductive. Poeton can apply the process to the MIL-DTL-5541 approval.
Alocrom can be applied by either dipping or brushing. It’s a relatively quick and simple application process compared with other surface treatments. The treatment yields a very characteristic yellow colour.
It should be noted that Alocrom is a hexavalent chrome process that is under threat from the REACH regulations and a usage sunset date just a few years away. Poeton has therefore invested a huge amount of R&D resource over the last 7 years evaluating and perfecting the application methods of the Alocrom alternatives, such as: Surtec 650, Iridite NCP, Socomore TCS PACS and Lanthane. Please contact us for more details on the current alternatives.
