Open a window to worry-free surface treatment of extruded aluminum construction parts

As a construction material, aluminum is a preferred choice for window and greenhouse frames. Besides being lightweight and easy to process and recycle, aluminum parts can be finished in a rainbow of paint colors. Without proper surface treatment, however, the coating will delaminate over time.

Maintaining the color vibrancy of coated aluminum construction parts requires the right chemical surface treatment. While traditional solutions, such as a Ti/Zr conversion, may offer fine alternatives to using chromates or phosphates from an environmental perspective, their technical performance still can leave a lot to be desired.

This webinar will offer an overview on existing surface treatment options for aluminum construction parts and the ongoing challenge to find more efficient solutions that won’t break the bank or pose a risk to health, well-being or the environment. 

This webinar will introduce formulators to: 

  • The status of the current worldwide market for chemical treatment of extruded aluminum construction parts.

  • Pros and cons of existing surface treatment options for extruded aluminum components and the impact of new regulations.

  • The future of surface treatments for Aluminum 5005 and 6063 using Solvay’s Addibond™ technology to boost the technical performance of Ti/Zr conversion coatings, through a process that is both economically and environmentally friendly.
