Description of SOCOGEL A0203 BLUE
Chrome free sol-gel that solves aerospace rivet rash issues and enhances the adhesion of primer and paint on metallic surfaces.
SOCOGEL A0203 BLUE is an aqueous solution of zirconium salts, activated by an organo-silicon compound. After application, the solution forms a high performance sol-gel hybrid coating, which enhances the adhesion of paint systems on metals and alloys such as aluminium, titanium, stainless steel.
SOCOGEL A0203 BLUE main characteristics :
- is a patented technology
- enhances painting adhesion and durability of most of the current paint systemsis designed to solve the rivet rash issue
- is a chromium free conversion product – an interesting alternative to highly harmful chromate conversion technologies
- is a potential process cost saving as no rinsing is required after application (no rinsing process, neither effluent treatment)
- is blue to visualise the product when applied.
SOCOGEL A0203 BLUE increases adhesion of primers and epoxy based paints on metallic surfaces . These coatings could be water or solvent-based, high solids content primers or paints, chromated or non-chromated paint system.
SOCOGEL A0203 BLUE is specially adapted to reactivate basic primer before applying the epoxy primer and to enhance paint system adhesion.
It is compatible with composite materials.It is designed for both OEM and MRO during airframe maintenance operations.
