Detailed Product Description:
Touch-N-Prep Alodine 1132 is a no rinse chromate conversion coating chemical
in a magic marker-type applicator for use on aluminum, steel, and galvanized
surfaces for multiple industrial maintenance and treatment applications.
Touch-N-Prep Alodine 1132 effectively phosphates most metals including
aluminum, ferrous and galvanized substrates. It doesn’t require rinsing, and
can be air-dried or force-dried with something as simple as a hair dryer or an
- Ideal for touch-up and field repair on aircraft—convenient, fast, reduced labor costs.
- Full 2-year shelf life (compared to 1 year for other Alodine Compounds).
- Meets Mil Spec requirements for aluminum conversion coating.
- No rinsing—no hazardous wastes to dispose of.
- Usually dries in 5 minutes or less.
- Cost Effective—though initially expensive, when total costs are considered significant savings can be realized.
First developed by Hughes, the applicator was originally filled with Alodine 1200
which still required water rinsing. Henkel bought the rights to the pen applicator for
which they subsequently developed this unique no-rinse Alodine formulation.
The coating produced is significantly different from a typical conversion coating
and was specifically developed for this type of dry-in-place application. It is now
included in the latest MIL-C-81706B revision. The chemistry is disclosed in
U.S. patent 6,361,622
Specification & Certifications:
Alodine® 1132 methods and properties are applicable to the requirements
of Mil-C-5541-F (Now AMS-C-5541) and AMS-A-2473. The composition
conforms to MIL-DTL-81706B and is listed on QPL-81706. The resulting
coating meets both Class 1A and Class 3. Note that these specifications
approve this product for aluminum alloys only.
The high density acrylic tip of the Touch-N-Prep applicator can be modified with
a single edge razor blade to form any shape. The application method controls the
amount of coating applied to the surface.
Pre-warm the surface (with a blow dryer, for example) and allow the heated metal
to flash off the coating chemicals. This also gives the most pleasing appearance.
Aluminum surfaces must be chemically clean—they produce a water-break-free
surface. The preferred cleaning method is to use a Bear-Tex or ScotchBrite Pad
wet with Alumiprep 33 or Metalprep 79 to chemically abrade the surface and
remove all traces of surface oxides. Please refer to Technical Process Bulletin
for further cleaning details.
As with most Alodine compounds, contains chromic acid, chromic phosphate
and other chromates. Avoid eye and skin contact. See MSDS available below.
Comes packed in a marking pen type applicator.
