Chromate Conversion Coatings
This article briefly describes the basic attributes of chromate conversion coatings and the processes for applying them. It provides information on the influence of substrate microstructure on the performance of coating deposits and on the mechanism of substrate protection supplied by chromate coatings. The article also discusses the development of replacement technologies in response to environmental constraints that have developed around the use of chromium-base compounds.
