The MICRALOX® technology allows customers to work within traditional design parameters of sulfuric acid anodizing specifications with more than 10 times improvement in chemical stability and corrosion resistance.”

Sanford Process Corporation will present two technical papers at the upcoming Aluminum 2000 conference in Bologna, Italy. On May 18th, Jack Tetrault will introduce Micro Crystalline Anodic Coatings - A Revolutionary Platform for Corrosion Protection. Leonid Lerner will present Hard Coating of the Cast Aluminum Alloys by Different Anodizing Processes.

“We are especially excited about going to Italy this year as there is tremendous licensing interest in the micro-crystalline oxides we have developed,” stated Jack Tetrault. “The European market has been looking for many years for a RoHS-compliant and cost effective anodic coating that can withstand strong detergents and aggressive cleaning cycles. The MICRALOX® technology allows customers to work within traditional design parameters of sulfuric acid anodizing specifications with more than 10 times improvement in chemical stability and corrosion resistance.”

Sanford Process’ goal in attending the show is to communicate how this technology dramatically changes traditional assumptions regarding the use of aluminum for many applications in the medical, industrial and marine market segments. Since the introduction of MICRALOX® in Europe at the MEDICA show, Sanford Process has entered into numerous discussions to license the technology to both captive and general service metal finishers. During the ALUMINUM 2000 show, information packets on the technology, side-by-side samples, and standard term sheets will be available. Please contact either Jack Tetrault (jtetrault@sanfordprocess.com) or Leonid Lerner (leonid@sanfordprocess.com) prior to the show if you wish to schedule one-on-one discussions.
