Automated electrostatic coating

NACL anodizing under-coat

As an under-coat treatment for painting of aluminum building materials, cromate coating or sulfric acid anodic oxidation film are wldely used. However, cromate coating has a problem of peeling the coat due to a non-uniformed film and also has a problem of waste water pollution. Therefore we, NACL recommend a sulfuric acid anodic oxidation film as an under-coat for painting.

  • Ecology
    Any waste water pollution or any environmental pollution does not occur because of non-use of chrome chemicals.
  • High adhesion
    Because of the excellent adhesion, any film peeling does not occur.
  • Excellent hardness and wear resistance
    Excellent hardness and wear resistance can be obtained.
  • Coloring is available
    Because of an anodizing under-coat, it is possible to color.

NACL Anodizing
under-coat process
Anodizing under-coat can improve the film adhesion by itself. And corrosion resistance of the anodizing film is excellent compared to that of the chromate coating.
In case of the coating thickness of anodizing film 6µm + fluorine painting film 25µm,
  • Anodizing film thickness can be measured and controlled.
  • It can be measured by the total thickness, and the thickness of painting film can be controlled.
Therefore the total film thickness is comprising of 100% flourine resin paints according to the specification requirement.
Conventional Chromate
coating process
Conventional under-coat needs to use the chromate which includes a pollutant of Cr6+. Therefore it leads to a pollution problem.
Primer coating(an undercoat) is necessary as the joint between chromate film and fluoric resin.
Epoxy resin is used as the main material of primer, but epoxy base is easily degraded by the ultraviolet rays.
