A New Concept in Aluminum Surface Protection 790466
This paper describes a new technology developed for protecting bright aluminum surfaces. The technology involves a new highly inorganic material. This material is used to form a very clear, thin, and hard coating which protects an aluminum surface from a wide variety of environmental degradation. Data is presented illustrating the final protective properties of the coating material. Some comparisons are drawn with clear organic coatings and anodic finishes. The handling and application of the material is touched upon.
