Aluminium Pretreatment

Alumenate Process:

Alumenate utilises a new generation of processes for the pre-treatment and plating of aluminium and aluminium alloys.

Degreaser SLOTOCLEAN AK 340

A mild, alkaline process for soak cleaning of sensitive metals such as zinc diecast and aluminium.

The cleaner is made up with a salt concentrate along with an appropriate degreaser additive for the application.

It is also suitable for cleaning copper, brass and steel.

Aluminium Pickle SLOTETCH 590

A strongly acidic process for the removal oxides from the surface of the aluminium substrate prior to subsequent plating.

It has been specially developed to have a low etch rate of the underlying substrate and help to leave a smooth, pit free and adherent surface on aluminium alloys.

Aluminium Pickle SLOTOCLEAN AK 60

A sodium hydroxide based aluminium pickle for use on aluminium substrates.

The process has excellent wetting and dispersing characteristics.

The use of organic oxidants and complexing agents prevents the formation of scale even at high aluminium concentration.

Desmut SLOTOCLEAN DS 10

A nitric acid free process for removing the smut formed during the etching of aluminium alloys.

The process has a long service life, is easily maintained and has negligible attack on the substrate.

Zincate CNF 10

Zincate CNF 10 is a cyanide free process which produces by immersion a thin zincate layer on aluminium and its alloys allowing subsequent electroless or electrolytic plating.

Zinc Strip SLOTOSTRIP ZN 10

A nitric free  zinc strip for removal of the first stage zincate layer in a double zincate layer process sequence.

The process has a long service life, is easily maintained and has negligible attack on the substrate.
