Chromating, also known as chromate conversion coating, is a surface treatment process that involves the conversion of the surface of a metal to a thin layer of chromate. The process involves a chemical reaction that occurs on the surface of the metal, resulting in a protective layer that can enhance the corrosion resistance of the metal and improve adhesion for subsequent coatings.

Benefits of Chromating:

Corrosion Resistance

Chromating can enhance the corrosion resistance of the metal by providing a protective layer that can help prevent corrosion.


Chromating can improve the adhesion of subsequent coatings, such as paints or adhesives, by providing a roughened surface that can enhance bonding.


Chromating can provide a decorative finish that can enhance the appearance of the metal.

Regulatory Compliance

Chromating is often required to meet regulatory standards for certain industries, such as the aerospace industry.


Chromating can be applied to a wide range of metal substrates, including aluminum, magnesium, and zinc, making it a versatile process that can be used in a variety of industries and applications.
