Kochek Company is introducing a new Micralox coating for its line of firefighting connectors. Exclusive to Kochek for the fire fighting industry, Micralox is a patented micro-crystalline anodizing process that produces a long lasting, virtually indestructible surface. Micralox provides superior chemical corrosion and high abrasion resistance.

Ideal for use in harsh environments like costal areas and marine applications where salt corrosion is a concern or industrial plants, Kochek's Micralox extends the life of aluminum parts up to 10 times compared to conventional aluminum anodic coatings. This new micro-crystalline anodizing process solves coating and corrosion problems, having withstood 15,000 hours of salt spray with no pitting. The micro-crystalline forms an effective barrier layer enhancing chemical stability to more effectively resists chemical corrosion, provides a uniformity of coating, and is resistant to discoloration. Micralox is available in a wide variety of colors.

Kochek also offers the Sanford Quantum Hardcoat Color and Natural coating options. Both offer a high quality, durable hard coat considered to be the finest hard anodize process in the world. The Quantum Hardcoat Quantum Color features vibrant anodized color for color coding fire fighting equipment.
