Abstract:

Conversion coating is the chemical treatment of a metal surface to produce an adherent coating composed of protective chemicals which primarily inhibit corrosion and increase paint adhesion, while providing acceptable contact electrical resistance. Chromate conversion coatings CCC are produced by combining chromium compounds, identified as one of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys EPA top 17 worst industrial toxins, with other water-soluble inorganic materials. Non-Chromate conversion coatings NCCC are produced by using various non-chromium containing compounds to perform the same function as the current CCC.
