Chromate conversion coatings are a variable group that can be made as a single finish by itself, or as a secondary after treatment of another metal finish and is generally applied to aluminum. This chemical film, also called by the trade names of Alodine or Iridite, is a thin, clear, blue, yellow or litmus conversion coating used as primer for painting, general protection to prevent the aluminum from oxidizing. When we say it is a secondary post treatment it is understood as a chromate on another finish such as zinc or cadmium.
