Aerospace series - Trivalent chromium based chemical conversion coatings for aluminium and aluminium alloys
|Publication Date:||1 September 2017|
|ICS Code (Other treatments and coatings):||25.220.99|
This European Standard specifies trivalent chromium based chemical conversion coatings for aluminium and aluminium alloys. It covers the application by bath but also by touch-up. It doesn't give complete in-house process instructions; these shall be given in the manufacturers detailed process instructions.
Purpose of process
The aim of the trivalent chromium based chemical conversion coatings is to increase corrosion resistance, to improve the adhesion of paints and varnishes and to ensure electrical conductivity. Coatings are also suitable for the repair of mechanically damaged anodic coatings.
