AEM Makes Improvements on the Road to ‘Greener Processes’ 7 Feb, 14, Source: AEM Corp

Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp (AEM) is now capable of providing an environmentally safer chemical conversion coating for their aluminum products.

AEM’s new chemical conversion coating process is in accordance with the standard ‘MIL-DTL-5541F, Type II’.  The trivalent coating process was introduced to AEM by a European OEM. This new non-hexavalent chromium coating process is RoHS and REACh compliant. Not only is it a much greener process, but it provides a much improved level of  protection than was provided by the previous coating process.

Dan Potts, Operations Manager stated “AEM’s new conversion coating process has passed salt fog testing as per above MIL-DTL-5541F Type II. This is quite the accomplishment for AEM and a great way to start off 2014.” Other environment friendly projects by AEM include the complete upgrade of their building’s lighting system. The utilization of low energy lights and digital ballasts throughout their 32,000 square foot facility has significantly reduced its carbon footprint. AEM has embraced the worldwide push for greener production methods and materials and is committed to lead by example.
