Alocrom 1200

What is ALOCROM 1200?

ALOCROM 1200 is a rapid non-electrolytic dip process which forms a protective iridescent golden coloured chromate coating on aluminium and its alloys.

It gives excellent corrosion resistance to painted and unpainted aluminium surfaces.

The coating is flexible, and will withstand bending and denting of surfaces.  Also, it gives an excellent foundation for paint and other organic finishes.

Light to medium coatings have minimum effect on surface electrical resistance.

ALOCROM is a cost-effective coating.


ALOCROM 1200 is ideal for coating all types of aluminium and aluminium alloys including high silicon pressure die-castings.

It should be used on aluminium wherever maximum corrosion resistance is required, and is suitable for articles which are to be painted or left unpainted.  It has approval for repairing damaged anodic coatings used in aircraft.  Other uses include general industrial work, electrical components, domestic appliances, car body parts and aircraft components.  It is unaffected by steel, brass or copper inserts in the articles being processed.

ALOCROM 1200 should not be used for food containers.

ALOCROM 1200 is not suitable for producing decorative effect on unpainted alloys which are subject to exterior weathering as some change in colour may occur in this use.

Outside the UK, Alocrom range of products are marketed under the Alodine trade name.
