Chromate Conversion & Metal Painting

Chromate conversion is a corrosion inhibitor coating that provides an excellent base for subsequent painting or powder coating services. It provides a nearly zero electrical resistance. PECO’s chromate conversion process has met the demanding process control requirements for the Nadcap Chemical Processing accreditation. The parts are cleaned and chemically etched to impart both pleasing appearance and an optimum surface for paint adhesion. We also have an environmentally controlled paint booth and curing oven to provide demanding paint finishes worthy of any corporate or commercial aircraft exterior.

PECO’s engineers offer expert consulting advise and problem solving. Test data for corrosion resistance using military specification (MIL-DTL-5541) salt spray exposure can be provided. We specialize in custom fixturing to accommodate different part sizes and work with your engineers to define custom process to meet your requirements.
