Chemical Film Treatment for Aluminum Alloys General Purpose Coating
|Publication Date:||1 January 2020|
This specification establishes the requirements for chemical-film (conversion) coatings on aluminum alloys.
This process has been used typically for increasing the corrosion resistance of aluminum alloy parts, as a base for paint or other organic finishes, and for repair of abraded surfaces or discontinuous anodized coatings on aluminum alloy parts, but usage is not limited to such applications. AMS2477 is intended for applications that include electrical bonding requirements.
Chemical coatings covered by this specification are classified as follows (see Ordering Information):
Type I - Hexavalent chromate treatment
Type II - Trivalent chromium treatment
Type III - Phosphate treatment
Type IV - Silicate treatment
Type V - Oxide treatment
When no type is specified, any type may be supplied (see 3.1, 3.4.3, and 4.4).
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.
