Cleaning of aluminum

Aluminium cleaning: Procedure and advantages

The characteristics of aluminium surfaces can be improved exactly by depositing of a conversion coating. In this process, the non-uniform oxide film of the AL-surface is removed and replaced by a defined thin and resistant conversion layer.

The applied layers meet the requirements of the EU End of Life Vehicles Directive.

Further information on aluminium cleaning

  • Improved corrosion protection
  • Excellent adhesion primer for paints and varnishes
  • The formation of the natural oxide layer is inhibited by the application of this extremely thin layer
  • These layers are an excellent basis for subsequent processes:
    • Welding
    • Paint
    • Glue
    • Vulcanize
    • Environmentally friendly process
