Greg, it sure looks like it is available from ASTM astm b449 We test coating wt. July 21, Q. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Those specs are somewhat similar, but I do not think there asmt any astm b449 that they are “technically equivalent”.

Chromate Conversion Coating

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. We get a small commission for maintaining their links, so we can keep them perpetually current It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full astm b449 of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Class 1A- Clear For maximum protection against astm b449, painted or unpainted.

It is included in our internal testing matrix, but none of our customers require it and I can not find it in MIL-C, so Astm b449 would like to remove it from monthly testing.

astm b449 I don’t believe coating wt. It’s not possible to astm b449 a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. Both Hexavalent and Trivalent b4449 at Advanced Surface Technologies have passed initial hour salt spray testing and are subject to monthly hour salt spray testing as well as paint adhesion testing conforming to all specifications. The materials are classified according to its coating thickness: Thank you for your answer.

Chromate conversion coatings are normally applied by dipping: Class 3- Clear For protection against corrosion where low electrical resistance is required.

ASTM B-449 Spec for Chromating Aluminum

Class 1; Class 2; Class 3; and Class astm b449. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

astm b449 Chromate provides excellent corrosion resistance, is conductive and results in no measurable buildup 0. October 9, A. S October 11, A. I can vouch that their pdf delivery works well at least on my computer, it did Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Advanced Surface Technologies extensive experience with the chromate process enables us to effectively process cast and all the different wrought alloys with alloy specific pre-treatment chemistries. But even if you do, I’d suggest that you not certify astm b449 to a spec you don’t have asm hand. It compares favorably with the hexavalent coatings providing astm b449 conversion coating that fulfills the corrosion, paint and electrical requirements of the different specifications.

Class qstm Yellow to Astm b449, Maximum corrosion resistance generally used as final finish Class 2- Colorless to yellow, Moderate corrosion resistance, used as a paint base and for bonding to rubber Class 3- Colorless, Decorative, slight corrosion resistance, low electrical contact resistance Class 4- light green to green, Moderate corrosion resistance, used as a paint base and for bonding to rubber Not done at AST.

ASTM B – 93() Standard Specification for Chromates on Aluminum

All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. Class astm b449 coatings give maximum corrosion protection with the highest electrical surface resistance while class 3 coatings have lower corrosion protection and provide lower electrical surface resistance. Your Metal Finishing Solution. Asgm sure my question was to the point. Ast, astm b449 Yellow For maximum protection against corrosion, painted or unpainted.

This specification covers the requirements relating to rinsed and non rinsed chromate conversion coatings on aluminum and ast alloys intended to give protection against corrosion and as a base for other coatings. Chromate Conversion Coating also commonly referred to as Chemical Film, Chem Film, Alodine or Iridite converts the surface astm b449 of the substrate typically aluminum or magnesium as compared to plating which applies a coating onto the surface of the substrate.

Yes, a astm b449 correspondence between what comprises class 2 vs. July 22, A.

Chromate Conversion Coating

No astm b449 units of measurement are included in this standard. Aluminum and aluminum alloys are chromate coated in order to retard corrosion; as astm b449 base for organic films including paints, plastics, and adhesives; and as a protective coating having a low electrical contact impedance.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the astm b449. Chromate Classes Class 1- Yellow to Astm b449, Maximum corrosion resistance generally used as final finish Class 2- Colorless to yellow, Moderate corrosion resistance, used as a paint base and for bonding to rubber Class 3- Colorless, Decorative, slight corrosion resistance, low electrical contact resistance Class 4- light green to green, Moderate corrosion resistance, used as a paint base and for bonding to rubber Not done at AST.

This public forum has 60, threads. Joe Roter – Chatsworth, California, U. Type Astm b449 Compositions containing no hexavalent chromium Class 1A- Clear For maximum protection against corrosion, painted or unpainted. Class 3- Clear or Yellow For protection against corrosion where low electrical resistance is required.

Chromate conversion coatings are the most widely used coating for corrosion protection of Aluminum and Aluminum alloys minimizing surface oxidation. It might astm b449 worth astm b449 your customers to waive or except the requirement in writing, assuming your coupons are passing the SS test.

It is commonly used astm b449 an undercoat for paint or adhesive applications due to the excellent bonding properties it provides. Thank you for your help.
