This trivalent chromium, aqueous coating is made for aluminum, aluminum alloys and IVD deposited aluminum. It has a low electrical contact impedance, and comes in a color range from clear to light blue. It can be applied by immersion or in spray form. With long-term corrosion protection, it is Class 3 per ASTM B449, and meets Mil-C-5541 for Class 1 and Class 3, is RoHS-compliant and meets ELV and WEEE requirements. It works as a good bonding agent for paint (new or repaint), and is geared toward aluminum products in the automotive, aircraft, sport vehicle, architectural and hardware industries.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
