CompCoteTM

CompCote is both Heavy Metal free, (No Chrome) and Halide free, (NO Fluoropolymers, or PVCs)

The anodizing of aluminum has always been a sturdy fixture in the mind of the light metals industry. By capturing the essence of the natural phenomena of oxide film formation in a production environment, the anodization process has become synonymous with surface protection and durability.

Through its three most widely used variations (Types I, II, and III), aluminum anodizing allows for corrosion and abrasion resistance, dye ability, fracture toughness, and fatigue strength in a wide variety of applications. However, the aluminum industry has grown complacent with the ability of these finishes to work in specific applications and the technology has become stagnant.

Active research into the ability of forming polymer-metal oxide composites through a variation of the anodizing process has led to fresh ideas regarding anodizing. This new outlook has produced numerous areas for further research, as well as a new coating, CompCoteTM, that attacks the status quo of the anodized film's expected engineering properties. The various properties of the anodic polymer-metal oxide composite film, CompCoteTM, were tested and compared to the three major standard variations of aluminum anodizing.

CompCoteTM

Corrosion Protection
CompCote has surpassed the standard military specifications for conventional anodizing. CompCoteTM continues on where conventional anodizing has failed.

Abrasion / Wear Resistance
CompCote's abrasion resistance is more than three times greater than conventional anodizing.

Enviromentally Friendly
From cryogenic to high temperatures, CompCote maintains its stable structure, and is not susceptible to the breakdown seen by conventional polymer coating.

CompCoteTM H

Corrosion Protection
CompCote H's advanced microstructure imparts superior corrosion resistance in salt spray, and even the most severe environments: Heavy Metal Halides, Sodium, and Sodium/Mercury Amalgam.

Abrasion / Wear Resistance
CompCote H exhibits 50% better abrasion resistance than Type III films. The modified structure meets wear forces with a tougher, more compliant surface, differing from the brittle, thicker column walls of a Type III film.

Enviromentally Friendly
From cryogenic to high temperatures, CompCote H maintains its stable structure, and is not susceptible to the breakdown seen by conventional polymer coating.
