Hexavalent chromium Cr(VI) or Cr6, a known toxin and carcinogen, is banned in Europe and in many industries in the U.S., and yet it’s been part of your coating system for aluminum for decades. If you haven’t explored the possibilities of our magnesium-rich primers, now is the time.
Superb for all aluminum alloys, including 2024, 7075, 6061, 5052 and also works well on metal-to-metal joints, rivets and stress points with other metal alloys.
Eliminate chromium pre-washes and chromium-based primers. Eliminate costly and dangerous hazmat spraying and disposal. Eliminate the need to prime and paint at the same time.
Magnesium-based primers are a new way to protect aluminum from filaform corrosion, poor adhesion and premature paint system failure. Just one spray coat cold anodizes the surface, creates superior adhesion, and protects against filaform corrosion. The surface remains flexible and durable and you can store your pre-primed aluminum for up to one year without any oxidation on the surface. Oven-cure for faster turnaround time.
Revolutionize your painting process, increase efficiency and lower costs dramatically. Your spray booth will be free from carcinogens and your surface prep time will be cut in half.
Originally developed for and now used by the U.S. Air Force for use on airplanes, this technology has now been optimized for use on amphibious vehicles and saltwater applications, such as yachts, superstructures and construction.
