A VERSATILE THIN DENSE CHROME PLATING PROCESS FOR ALUMINUM
AL-COAT® is a thin dense chrome coating specifically engineered for aluminum. If you’re looking for a solution to preventing wear, corrosion and galling in aluminum industrial applications, AL-COAT® meets every demand.
By choosing AL-COAT® you can increase performance, decrease maintenance costs and improve the longevity of your parts and equipment.
AL-COAT® provides a coating that performs similarly to stainless steel; wear and tear on aluminum alloys is drastically reduced. The wear is <1.2 TWI per AMS 2438.
In addition, the coating is ASTM-B-117 compliant making it a long-lasting solution for extremely harsh and corrosive environments. AL-COAT® has a hardness rating of 70-72 Rc with lubricity as low as 0.09 CoF, meaning it has very low surface friction.
AL-COAT® acts as a dry lubricant which prevents galling and who needs cold welding when you can AL-COAT® instead? Absolute adhesion is also achieved, meaning the coating will not chip, flake or peel.
The appearance of the coating is a gray satin finish, with a deposit thickness of .000050”-.0001”.
ENGINEERED TO PERFORM
AL-COAT® was developed to meet the challenge of protecting aluminum alloys. This technologically advanced coating provides a dense, non-magnetic, high-chromium alloy deposited directly on an aluminum substrate.
The coating is very adherent, while remaining quite ductile. It is uniform in deposit thickness and consistent in appearance.
AL-COAT® meets specifications AMS-2460 and AMS-2438 and it is USDA compliant.
A SUPERIOR SOLUTION TO ANODIZING
AL-COAT® is used across a wide variety of industries including plastic injection molding, food processing, oil and gas, aerospace, medical, and nuclear power. At the end of the day if you need better protection for your aluminum application, AL-COAT® is likely the answer you’ve been looking for.
AL-COAT® has been proven successful in many different applications including:
- Sizing Dies and Molds
- Heat Sealing Equipment
- Medical Hand Pieces
- Aircraft Housings, Cylinders, and Shafts
- Automation Equipment (Plates, Rails, Slides)
- Computer Chip / Wafer Processing
- Test Equipment
