Albany, Canada (PressExposure) May 29, 2009 -- Toronto Ontario Canada. May 26, 2009. Aurora Marineâs newest product, ALUMETRON, is a unique direct to metal, clear, polymeric coating which bonds chemically to aluminum, protecting it against corrosion, chalking and staining, even in constant water immersion. The ability to bond chemically as well as mechanically makes ALUMETRON an incomparable protective coating for aluminum.
This new formula uses water based technology which reduces VOC emissions making it a green product. Itâs non flammable and non corrosive. There are no special handling, storage or shipping considerations to be concerned with. ALUMETRON is suitable for OEM as well as aftermarket use.
Aluminum is considered by scientists to be an anti-social metal because it rejects most coatings. Protection against corrosion usually consists of heat treating, anodizing in corrosive acid baths, special primers and paints and even then protection is limited. Aluminum is well suited to marine applications because itâs light, durable, flexible, inexpensive and attractive but has always suffered from susceptibility to corrosion. Now with ALUMETRON protection, it might just be the perfect marine metal.
Ask any pontoon boat owner what their aluminum pontoons look like after a summer in the water and most will tell you âlike rusty steel drumsâ. Fishermen complain that their expensive aluminum towers and outriggers begin to get dull and pit from the salt water and air, even though they have been anodized. Salt water sailors maintain a constant vigil to insure that their aluminum masts and rigging are free from corrosion attack. This new breakthrough invention from Aurora makes all this is a thing of the past. A single application of ALUMETRON can keep the precious aluminum on your boat looking shiny and new for 5 years or longer.
ALUMETRON is easy to apply. Simply wipe or spray it on and let it dry. No primers or special pre-treatment is required. If your aluminum needs help, Aurora Marine can supply all the necessary products needed to clean and restore it to like new. An aluminum boat with a bright shiny hull or pontoons will give you greater enjoyment of your boat and fetch a much higher value at trade in time.
In addition to protecting aluminum from environmental attack and corrosion, ALUMETRON is also effective at protecting brass, copper and galvanized steel. Trailers made from aluminum or galvanized steel take a real beating from salt water or road salt in northern climates, but ALUMETRON will protect these trailers with a tough, clear, protective, coat.
