Alocrom 1200 chromate coating
Alocrom 1200 chromate coating is a type of conversion coating used to passivate steel, aluminium and aluminium alloys. Our clients primarily ask us to apply chromate coating to their components as a corrosion inhibitor, a primer, to retain electrical conductivity or to provide a decorative finish. Chromate conversion coatings are commonly applied to everyday items such as hardware and tools, and can usually be recognised by their distinctively iridescent, greenish-yellow colour.
