Chemical: ALODINE 1200s-RTU
Bath Preparation per 100 Gallons: Used as received without dilution.
Operation and Control: Apply the coating chemical using an acid-resistant brush, swab or synthetic sponge.
Time: 1 to 5 minutes.
Temperature: 65° to 95° Fahrenheit
The complete process normally consists of the following steps:
The work, after drying, is ready for use either painted or unpainted.
Acid-resistant (rubber, stainless steel, or plastic) buckets, troughs, or other suitable containers are used to hold the coating chemical solution. Lead, glass, tin or galvanized iron should not be used. Storing the solution in mild steel containers will result in the decomposition of the solution and is not recommended.
NOTE: ALODINE 1200S-RTU saturated nylon brush or roller, sponges, swabs, etc., should be thoroughly washed with water before allowing to dry or discarding. Otherwise, they may constitute a fire hazard.
Cleaning: All metal to be treated with the processing solution must be free from corrosion, grease, oil and other foreign materials before treatment. A complete line of cleaners is available. Our representative will recommend the proper cleaner or your processing needs.
Water Rinsing: After cleaning, the metal must be thoroughly rinsed with water. The rinse should be overflowed continuously at a rate which will keep it clean and free from scum and contamination.
Treating with the ALODINE 1200S-RTU Processing Solution
Apply the coating chemical solution liberally to the aluminum surface. Treat only as large an area at one time as can be conveniently handled with the equipment being used (approximately 6 to 10 square feet of surface).
Use as many applications as necessary to get the desired coating, allowing approximately one to five minutes reaction time before final water rinsing. The color of the coating will range from a light, iridescent gold to tan depending on the aluminum alloy, temperature and number of applications.
Time: 1 to 5 minutes.
Temperature: 65° to 95° Fahrenheit.
Rinsing and Drying: Unreacted coating chemical should be removed by one of the following methods:
Any seams, joints and crevices should be blown dry with clean, dry, compressed air and the moisture splatters wiped dry with clean rags.
This chemical should be stored indoors away from alkaline and organic materials. Do not allow ALODINE 1200S-RTU to freeze. Do not store with chlorine containing materials.
