AcronymALPASS

Proposal titleAn Environmetally Acceptable Chromate Replacement for the Passivation of

Aluminium Surfaces

AbstractThe proposal addresses the replacement of toxic hexavalent chromate compounds in the

formation of passive films for corrosion protection on aluminium and its alloys. The aim

is to develop a low-toxicity replacement processing solution to give the level of corrosion

resistance and paint adhesion currently provided by chromate-containing formulations.

The objectives are to: (a) establish the most effective chromate-replacement for

passivating aluminium/aluminium alloy surfaces (b) optimise the treatment in terms of its

operating parameters e.g. treatment time, solution composition, pH, temperature (c)

develop the coating's characteristics in terms of adhesion of subsequent organic films and

(d) develop the process to a level where industrial specimens can be passivated in small

batch trials. passivated surfaces will be subjected to partner acceptance trials.
