ALUMINIUM TREATMENT Two new additions to our full line of Aluminium Pre and Post Treatment Chemistry are our TRIVATE AL Trivalent Aluminium Passivate and our ALUDYE Aluminium Anodising Dyes. Trivate AL is suitable for use with Aluminium and Aluminium castings providing a clear or slightly coloured Trivalent Passivation layer giving excellent corrosion resistance over a wide range of operating parameters. Our Aludye Anodising dyes provide consistent colouring and performance across a wide range of conditions as well as meeting light fastness and hardness specifications. Coupled with the excellent technical performance are considerable benefits in operating costs when compared to other popular dyes on the market. These two additions give us the opportunity to offer a full process line of Aluminium Treatment Chemistry to the UK market. At the very forefront of plating technology for the General Metal Finishing industry for 60 years. TRIVATE AL Following extensive development work we are pleased to announce the release of our new Trivalent Aluminium Passivate TRIVATE AL. TRIVATE AL is suitable for Aluminium, Aluminium Alloys and castings, used in both spray and immersion applications. With superior corrosion resistance to that of Hexavalent types TRIVATE AL offers technical advantages as well as meeting environmental regulations. Features of TRIVATE AL: • Resistant to the high temperatures of 100ºc without detracting from its corrosion resistance ability. • Non-toxic, simple operation and ease of use using conventional processing systems. • Meets or exceeds the MIL-DTL-81706 and MIL5541 corrosion standard (according to ASTMB-117 and DIN 50021 SS neutral salt spray test, more than 336 hours to white rust).
