Alodine / Chem Film / Chemical Conversion / Irridite

What is Alodine?

Alodine is a chromate conversion coating applied to aluminum parts to enhance corrosion protection while still maintaining conductivity. It is also used to prepare aluminum parts before primer and paint to improve the adhesion. 

Alodine is also referred to in prints as "Chem Film" "Chemical Conversion" and "Irridite"

The coating thickness is typically only .00001" - .00004"

Available colors include Clear and Gold
