Chromate Conversion Services

Chromate Conversion ServicesAce Anodizing’s expert chromate conversion services are highly automated, which gives us the ability to deliver fast turnarounds that meet your demanding production scheduling needs. Our facility houses large rack tanks capable of immersing parts up to 24′ long x 38″ wide x 60″ height and weighing up to 2,500 pounds. Chromate conversion is an inexpensive way to impart increased corrosion resistance and provide a good bonding surface for paint and adhesives to parts such as electronic components, heat sinks, electrical cabinet interiors, or any product fabricated from aluminum and aluminum alloys. An additional benefit is that the parts retain their electrically conductive properties.

We offer an RoHS-compliant clear trivalent chromium process that is free from hexavalent chromium and complies with the requirements of MIL-DTL-5541F Class 3.
We also offer the more traditional process for gold and yellow MIL-DTL-5541F Class 1A requirements. Whatever your needs, Ace Anodizing will consult with you to ensure that the right process is selected. Our full service facility also offers a range of post-treatment operations, including painting, powder coating, and anodizing, giving you a single-source solution to your part finishing needs.
