Alocrom is a Chromate conversion coating chemically applied to aluminium, which provides corrosion protection. It is also applied prior to painting or powder coating and is used when protection and/or electrical conductivity is required. Good electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and good paint key are all benefits gained by Chromate Conversion.
Alocrom 1200 is ideal for coating all types of aluminium and aluminium alloys. It should be used on aluminium wherever maximum corrosion resistance and when electrical conductivity is required. It is suitable for components that are to be painted or left unpainted. It gives a protective golden coloured coating which is integral with the aluminium.
Light to medium Alocrom coatings have minimal effect on surface electrical resistance.
We are also offer Surtec 650 as an alternative to Alocrom 1200.
