Description

Micron has developed an innovative PEO (Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation) magnesium anodizing treatment called OX-UHA. The treatment makes it possible to obtain exceptional characteristics of corrosion and wear protection, better than any other chromium-free magnesium coating. Due to the health and environmental problems associated with hexavalent chromium, OX-UHA has become the main alternative treatment. It is applied successfully on an assortment of automotive, aerospace, and motor sports sector parts, such as motorcycle wheels and aircraft components. The process converts the magnesium into a dense and compact film of magnesium oxide characterized by uniform thickness over the entire outer surface. The treatment is light in colour and it can be used as-is or as a primer for a subsequent painting schedule that further increases corrosion resistance. EXCELLENT WEAR RESISTANCE Unlike conventional anodizing treatments, the OX-UHA process employs high current to create a plasma on the surface of the part. This results in microfusion of the oxide film, which is mineralized and compacted, increasing the level of hardness and wear resistance.
