Global coatings supplier PPG (Pittsburgh) announced early last week that PPG RECC 3007, an aerospace conversion coating, now officially meets the qualifications for the U.S. Military Specification MIL-C-81706, Type II, Class 3, Form IV, Method A, a specification for chemical conversion coatings applied to aluminum.

According to the company, this is the first non-chrome aerospace pretreatment coating that has qualified for the Department of Defense’s specification.

Coating Specification

The PPG RECC 3007 pretreatment, sprayed onto bare aluminum alloy aircraft surfaces for corrosion protection and offering improved surface adhesion for later primer application, is formulated without chrome. The treatment is provided in an aqueous solution and formulated without volatile organic compounds.

Global coatings supplier PPG (Pittsburgh) announced early last week that PPG RECC 3007, an aerospace conversion coating, now officially meets the qualifications for the U.S. Military Specification MIL-C-81706, Type II, Class 3, Form IV, Method A, a specification for chemical conversion coatings applied to aluminum.

According to the company, the coating has low electrical resistance, which allows for some electrical continuity of aluminum surfaces, including aluminum and aluminum-coated electrical connectors, that cannot be painted. PPG also noted that the PPG RECC 3007 pretreatment may also offer corrosion resistance for other applications, such as electronic circuit boards.

“A key initiative for PPG is to offer aerospace coatings formulated without chromates and other chromium compounds that provide anticorrosion performance comparable to corrosion-resistant products formulated with chromium,” said Randall Brady, PPG global segment manager, aerospace pretreatment solutions.

“This military specification qualification enables all U.S. military branches and subcontractors to purchase [the] PPG RECC 3007 pretreatment. It also enables commercial and general aviation aircraft manufacturers, operators and subcontractors that purchase qualified coatings to order the product.”
