Magnesium Treatment Kit #680-227
Chemical Name:
Magnesium Treatment Kit
Chromate Conversion Coating

Product Description:


The Magnesium Treatment Kit contains all the materials necessary to


produce a chromate conversion coating on magnesium alloys. 


This coating will conform to SAE AMS-M-3171, Type VI (formerly MIL-M-3171,


Type VI). Additionally, the application method conforms to the requirements


of NAVAIR 01-1A-509.







Magnesium and its alloys are more galvanically active than even zinc


on the galvanic series. Magnesium will form a strong galvanic cell with


every other metal it comes into contact with and is always sacrificial. 


When magnesium corrosion is detected, it requires immediate attention


or the corrosion will spread throughout the entire structure. Therefore,


these alloys must be properly protected from corrosion damage.





This conversion coating is sometimes referred to as “Dow 19” and produces a


charcoal gray to gold-colored finish on most magnesium alloys.





Typical Applications:


This kit was developed specifically for convenient touch-up and corrosion


repair in the field or in repair shops. Ideal for touch-up and repair on helicopter


gearcases and transmission housings and other aircraft components.







Prior to the development of this kit, the chemicals and processes necessary to


perform field repairs on magnesium castings and other magnesium components


were simply not available. Previous instructions had users mixing up their own


formulations from bulk hazardous chemicals which are difficult to obtain in


small quantities.





Specification & Certifications:


The coating produced by proper application of the contents of this kit conforms


to SAE AMS-M-3171, Type VI (formerly MIL-M-3171, Type VI), referred to in


the “Aircraft Cleaning and Corrosion Control Manual (NAVAIR 01-1A-509). 





Surface Preparation & Application Notes:


Consult “Process Instruction #3171-6-1” (see link below) for


recommended surface preparation and process details.
