The ETV CCEP verifies the pollution prevention and performance characteristics of coating technologies and makes the results of the testing available to prospective coating technology users. The objective of this particular Testing and Quality Assurance Plan TQAP is to establish the performance of the Technology Applications Group TAG TAGNITE magnesium anodizing process. This innovative process was developed and patented by TAG to replace other anodizing processes and conversion coatings for magnesium alloys. The test data from this verification test will be compiled and used to develop a Verification Report, and, at the discretion of the vendor, a Verification Statement will be developed from the data contained in the Verification Report. TAG may use the Verification Statement as a marketing tool for the TAGNITE process, in accordance with the ETV Program requirements. The primary purpose of this document is to establish the TQAP for the TAGNITE magnesium anodizing process, and to establish specific data quality requirements for the verification of this technology. The vendor claims that the TAGNITE process is capable of exceeding the performance characteristics of existing magnesium anodizing processes while providing an environmental benefit in terms of eliminating the generation of chromates or permanganates in the waste stream.
