AHC Benelux BV in Venlo has now successfully completed the audit for certification according to EN / AS 9100ff. This opens AHC further opportunities for coating components for the civil- or defense related aerospace industry. AHC Benelux is specialized in the surface treatment of aluminum components by hard anodizing (HART-COAT®), anodizing, chromic acid anodizing, yellow chromating (ALODINE 1200) as well as the chrome free passivation Surtec 650. Ferrous metals are electroless nickel-plated (DURNI-COAT®) or hard-chromed (tubes for suspension technology). Not to mentioned the whole range of lubricant coatings, so-called Synergetic coatings to reduce, among others friction and wear.
On medium term, AHC Venlo will also introduce Tartaric acid - Sulphuric acid - anodizing (TSA), the anodizing in a mixture of wine- and sulfuric acid, to replace the Cr (VI)-containing electrolytes.
