SOCOSURF TCS & SOCOSURF PACS LAUNCH

Published on 26 November 2015

Socomore, through a partnership with Mecaprotec, develops a new conversion and sealing solution after anodizing, free of hexavalent chrome (Cr VI)

Manufacturers, in aerospace and other industries, have been trying to replace their Cr VI based chemical conversion and sealing baths with an equivalent process, before 2017 september 21st (REACH sunset date).

With SOCOSURF TCS and SOCOSURF PACS, SOCOMORE is proposing a new patented technology for chemical conversion and sealing of surfaces after anodizing, without Chrome VI. This process could be used for the pretreatment of painted and unpainted parts.

Remember that, even if REACH is an European regulation, its compliance will have worldwide repercussions because surface treatment companies are using products that are globally approved by main aircraft OEMs.

  • European OEMs that will approve a new Cr VI free process could require its use within their plants and at their partner’s/subcontractors in Europe, but also worldwide.
  • Non-European OEMs may produce or subcontract the production of parts in Europe. The production of these parts and its associated processes are subject to REACH regulations. This could encourage OEMs to approve new Cr VI free process and the worldwide implementation for their part production.

Process performances

  • High resistance to corrosion on numerous alloys 
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Paint system adhesion is promoted

Process performances are constant and reproducible.
