Aluminum Chromate Conversion

Aluminum Chromating Services

Aluminum chromating - often referred to as chemical films or under the trade names Alodine® and Iridite® - produce a thin protective film on the surface of the metal providing good surface conductivity.  A clear iridite finish provides corrosion resistance, as well as a good base for paint and other applications that require adhesion.  Chromating is ideal for applications that warrant an electrically conductive coating.  

Gatto Platers also offers Zinc Plating and Zinc-Nickel Plating as other corrosion resistant finish alternatives.
