Chromium(VI)- free; based on chromium trivalaent
For use in the cooling bath
Superb white rust protection
Passivation for Cooling Bath Chromefree ADL-3P is free of chromium(VI). It is a water-based trivalent chrome passivation to be applied op freshly galvanized steel surfaces. It offers “white rust” corrosion protection properties that exceed current alternative chromefree passivations.

Passivation ADL-3P v.s. Chromate passivation
The following table shows an overview comparison between Passivation ADL-3P and a traditional chrome(VI) based passivation.
|Chromate conversion coating
|Passivation performance (white rust prevention)
|Robust and easy to handle proces
|Meets quality standards
|Yes, industry standard
|Yes, meets the quality standards
|Direct use in quench tank
|Use after cooling bath (first cooling than passivation)
|yellow, clear layer
|Waste water treatment
|Multiple steps, chrome reduction required
|Regular waste water treatment
|Easy to strip passivation of substrate when needed?
|€€ slightly more expensive
Exceeding the market standard
HDG passivations have a huge range of requirements on a complex combination of zinc based alloys. This drives the need for close working relationships, consultation, testing and pilot line experimentation. With its passivation portfilio AD shows that replacing chromium-6 while maintaining the highest quality is possible.
Passivation products of AD are sustainable (free of chrome-6), economic and effective in use. If needed AD Chemicals can tailor the passivation requirements to the specific substrate and application process of a customer.
Direct use in quench tank. Passivation ADL-32 is free of chromium(VI). It is a water-based trivalent chrome passivation to be applied op freshly galvanized steel surfaces.
