What is Lumidize®?

LumiShield’s proprietary electroplating technology, Lumidize is a powerful and economical corrosion prevention tool.

Lumidize is an electrochemical process used to deposit thin films of aluminum oxide from a proprietary water-based solution. The resulting aluminum oxide barrier layer prevents corrosion of the underlying metal substrate and improves organic coating adhesion.

Key features of Lumidize:

  • Multiple patents pending.
  • No toxic metals, such as chromium, required.
  • Proprietary chemistry that allows deposition of aluminum from water.
  • Deposition on conductive substrates, including steel and aluminum.
  • Compatible with waterborne liquid, solventborne liquid and powder coating systems.
