Because of its excellent galvanic corrosion resistance, MICRALOX micro-crystalline aluminum oxide coating is the ideal coating for aluminum parts and components used in marine applications. Traditionally, aluminum is used by marine OEMs because of its excellent strength-to-weight ratio. However, the lifetime performance of aluminum components is limited due to the material’s potential for corrosion.
With the addition of MICRALOX micro-crystalline anodic coating, aluminum parts can withstand harsh, corrosive marine environments. And, MICRALOX-coated aluminum is more economical than other popular materials such as stainless steel.
