Anodizing Overview

Chem Film Coating is a type of chemical conversion coating used to passivate aluminum. It improves adhesion of paint finishes and other coatings and prevents corrosion, though it provides less corrosion resistance than some other finishes like anodizing. It also serves as a base for organic coatings while leaving dimensions unchanged. Specifications: MIL-DTL 5541

  • Benefits of Chem Film Coating:
  • Extend Part Life
  • Minimal Surface Oxidation on Aluminum
  • Wear Resistance
  • Cost-Effective
  • Ideal for Paint Adhesion
