American Trim has published a new white paper, The Principle of Protection. The paper documents a special coating for aluminum, Alodine®EC²™. Alodine® EC2™ was developed by the Henkel Corporation as a protective pretreatment system for aluminum substrates exposed to extreme environments. This new ElectroCeramic coating offers exciting potentials in the areas of corrosion, heat, and abrasion protection.

The Alodine® EC2™ ElectroCeramic coating process enhances production capabilities for industries that deal with corrosion and abrasion issues everyday:
Outdoor furniture
Small engine

The white paper details success stories from various industries and applications where the coating is making inroads and offering manufacturers exponential improvements in protection from corrosion, heat, and abrasion resistance.

Also outlined in the white paper are the advancements made in products through the greater production capabilities allowed using aluminum as a replacement for more expensive, heavier materials in the manufacturing process.  

Interested companies are invited to visit our website to read more about the coating Alodine®EC²™ and receive a copy of the white paper.
