As part of Henkel's response to REACH they have consolidated their Bonderite/Alocrom/Alodine product lines and have discontinued Alocrom 1000/Alodine 1000 in favour of their BONDERITE M-CR 1001 AERO (formerly Alodine 1001), which is an equivalent product. We offer BONDERITE 1001 as a replacement treatment for Alocrom 1000.

Alocrom 1000 is a specialised chromate conversion coating, that imparts good corrosion resistance and good electrical conductivity (low contact resistance) with minimal colouration. Alocrom 1000 is marketed under the name Alodine 1000 outside of the UK, both products are made by Henkel and are the same except for the name. Drawings calling for Alodine 1000 can be coated with Alocrom 1000 and vice versa.

Alocrom 1000/Alodine 1000 was on the QPL list for MIL-DTL-5541 (MIL-QPL-81706).


  • Provides increased corrosion resistance while still preserving electrical conductivity.
  • Provides a base for painting.
  • Suitable as a final finish for some service conditions.
