SAE - AMS3144A
(R) Primer, Anodic Electrodeposition for Aircraft Applications
|Publication Date:||1 October 2019|
This specification establishes the requirements for a waterborne, corrosion inhibiting, chemical and solvent resistant, anodic electrodeposition epoxy primer capable of curing at 200 to 210 °F (93 to 99 °C).
The primers covered by this specification are typically applied as base primers on military, general aviation, and commercial aircraft aluminum surfaces to protect against corrosion. They are suitable for use in a service temperature range from -65 to 250 °F (-54 to 121 °C).
The primers covered by this specification shall be classified as follows:
Type 1 - Standard pigments
Type 2 - Low IR (Infrared) pigments
Class C - Chromated - contains chromium-based corrosion inhibitors
Class N - Chrome-Free - contains no chromium-based corrosion inhibitors
Grade 1 - For use with hexavalent chrome conversion coating
Grade 2 - For use with non-hexavalent chromate conversion coating
Grade 3 - For use with cleaned and deoxidized only
Safety - Hazardous Materials
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
