Standard Practices for Preparation of Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Surfaces for Painting
|Publication Date:||10 September 2003|
|ICS Code (Paint coating processes):||87.020|
These practices cover four types of treatment for preparation of aluminum and aluminum-alloy surfaces for painting, as follows:
Type A - Solvent Cleaning.
Type B - Chemical Treatments.
Type C - Anodic Treatments.
Type D - Mechanical Treatments. These four types cover a number of procedures, as described herein.
Variations in surface treatment produce end conditions which differ, and which do not necessarily yield identical results when paints are applied. Service conditions will dictate the type of surface preparation that should be selected, although the quality produced by any individual method may vary with different alloys.
