How are you guys disposing of your spent alumaprep and alodine? Keep the part wet between alumiprep and alodine. They said 2 reasons. If you consider the alclad durable enough, then by all means leave it alone!

You cannot get the Alodine to work on without first treating with the Alumaprep The alodine is really needed where there is no corrosion protection. It is pretty much all I am doing. But the normally recomended cleaner is Alumiprep Don’t leave the part in the alodine too long.

I think it comes down to your individual plans for your specific aircraft.

Alclad is a top layer alumniprdp pure aluminum applied to the for corrosion protection. The question, why scuff up or “prep” alclad before treating it with alodine. Don’t leave the part in the alumiprep too long.

I ask them about preping and primeing when the metal has an alkalad surface. So why scrape it away and scuff it up just to replace it with an alclad generated coating? Nothing wrong with that as far as I know, but if you get it right, the part almost looks like it’s anodized.

This all depends upon alummniprep definition of “durable barrier” between substrate and environment. Therin lies the variable of what each builder considers the best, most durable barrier for their airplane and it’s intened useage.


The alumiprep leaves the aluminum bare, and it will oxidize as soon as the air hits it. The reason I asked was to make sure my next statement or question wasnt based on incorrect data. If the part is starting to turn dark, that’s too long.

It alumniprrp come out with a “chalky” tone too it. Only time will tell who is right. You will find that it takes longer to get that even colour you are looking for.

I was thinking that there was some more technical reason that people were prepping the alclad. No registered users and 1 guest.

It will turn out fine. First to cover the scratches and the other is where 2 pieces of metal are put together mosture can get traped between the pieces. A few suggestions about it’s use:
