Aluminum Deoxidizer
Luster-On 490L deoxidizer was developed primarily for processing 2000-series aluminum but is said to be effective on other aluminum extrusion alloys as well.

Luster-On Products Aluminum Deoxidizer
Luster-On Products will introduce 490L, a deoxidizer which, coupled with the company’s aluminum cleaners, is designed to economically prepare and condition the surface of aluminum alloys to properly accept conversion coatings.


Conversion Coating for Aluminum
Aluminescent is a REACH, RoHS, WEEE and ELV compliant and MIL-DTL-5541F approved conversion coating for aluminum that will be on display in the Luster-On booth.

MIL-DTL 5541F QPL approved Luster-On Aluminescent is a powdered product used to form a chromate conversion coating on aluminum surfaces without the use of hexavalent chromium.

Luster-On Products Inc.
Luster-On will display Aluminescent, which it says is the only powdered hex-free conversion coating for aluminum listed on the Qualified Products List for MIL-DTL 5541F, class 1A and 3.

The Clear Alternative to Traditional Yellow Hex Films
Chromate conversion coatings on aluminum were implemented initially in 1950 when Allied Research and Rheem Manufacturing used technology based on hexavalent chromium to provide protective chemical films on the metal substrate.

Trivalent for Zinc and Zinc Alloys
Tridescent is a hexavalent-free trivalent chromate that provides 125 hours salt spray protection.

Non-Hex Chemfilm for Aluminum
Environmentally Friendly Aluminescent, a Navy licensed trivalent chromate for aluminum,  contains no hexavalent chrome but still meets or exceeds present Mil Spec 5541 requirements.

Cyanide Zinc Systems
Luster-On 1515: A brightener system for conventional and low cyanide zinc plating solutions.

Acid Zinc Plating
Z-30/35W: An acid zinc plating system that provides full bright ductile deposit with low concentrations of organic addition agents.

Alkaline Zinc Systems
CNX-55: An alkaline cyanide-free process, which produces bright, lustrous deposits over a wide current density range.

Luster-On Products
Luster-On will be highlighting its Aluminescent, a powdered product used to form a chromate conversion coating on aluminum surfaces without the use of hexavalent chromium.
