PPG Aerospace developed Aerocron™ chrome-free electrocoat primer for use on a variety of common aerospace substrates, including aluminum alloys (2024, 2050, 2214, 5083, 6056, 6061,7075, 7175 and AS7G), titanium and stainless steel.

Aerocron™ chrome-free primers are designed to be used over chromate and chrome-free pretreatments and are fully compatible with all industry standard pretreatment and topcoats.

The result is a quality finish that maximizes paint adhesion and delivers outstanding corrosion protection.

In the electrocoating process, metal aircraft parts are dipped into an electrically charged tank of Aerocron™ chrome-free electrocoat primer.  The Aerocron™ water-based, chromate-free electrocoat primer produces near-zero waste, and the application process can be fully automated.
