Detailed Product Description:
This is a clear conversion coating. As with the more common Alodine® 1201,
Alodine® 1000 RTU, is also a registered trademark of Henkel Surface Technologies
and is a chemical treatment process for aluminum used to provide corrosion protection
and as a surface preparation for paint and adhesives. Sometimes called “aluminum
passivation,” it contains hexavalent chromium and is intended to provide corrosion
prevention even when left unpainted.
Alodine® 1000 RTU is similar in formulation to Alodine® 1001 and is used when
a clear coating or aluminum appearance is desired instead of the more typical
gold color of the Alodine® 1201 finish.

Applications in which temperatures can reach over 120ºF can break down
the corrosion resistance of the coating. In comparison to anodizing, this
chemical film is more fragile and not generally recommended for high-use
areas. This is a clear coating that leaves the surface with nearly the original
After degreasing, aluminum surfaces must be cleaned with a suitable etchant
such as Alumiprep 33 or Metal Prep 79, followed by a water rinse.
