Designed with convenience in mind, the Henkel Bonderite M-CR Alodine Pen formerly known as the Alodine Touch-N-Prep is an ideal product for touch-up applications of dry-in-place military specification-approved chromate conversion coatings.
This pen also reduces worker contact to chromating waste and solutions for improved safety and less mess. Use the Alodine on metal surfaces as primer, to inhibit corrosion or for a decorative finish. Chromate conversion coatings may also help metals retain their electrical conductivity, making it a great choice for technical uses as well.
This useful pen can be used on a wide variety of other projects as well making it a great addition to any toolbox. The pen comes pre-filled with an alodine solution and the specialized applicator reduces the amount of contact between the pen material and the user. At SkyGeek, we aim to provide innovative solutions to all of your aviation needs. It is compact and portable and makes a great addition to any handyman's toolbox.
The pen is designed with a protective cap. The cap is simply popped off. To activate the pen, hold the pen tip down on the surface to be treated. Press the pen down onto the surface. This opens the internal spring valve allowing the Alodine to wet the applicator tip. A new unit or new tip should charge in seconds. When the Alodine just wets the entire tip, release the downward pressure. The unit is ready to use. Immediately after use, gently press the cap back onto the pen to protect the applicator from dirt and damage.
Do not use excessive force when replacing the protective cap. Cleaning Prior to Use Begin the process with a clean, water break free, dry surface. If the water rinse or treatment beads up on the surface, it has not been properly cleaned or it was re-contaminated. Avoid finger marks! Clean latex gloves are highly effective at preventing finger oil and lint contamination during cleaning. Abrasion of the surface in two directions at 90 degrees is recommended.
After cleaning, rinse with water if appropriate and dry the surface with a clean cloth. If cleaning with a dry abrasive pad is required, a wipe with a clean damp cloth is recommended to help remove residues. Wipe until no dark residue is picked up from the surface. A surface clean of residue smut, abrasive fines etc. If a solvent is used, do not allow the solvent to dry on the surface, but remove the solvent and dry the surface with a clean lint free cloth. STEP 2: Wet a Bear-Tex, 3M Scotch-Brite or other similar abrasive pad materials with water and scrub the metal surface to remove oxides and expose a fresh metal surface.
Abrade the substrate in two directions. Rinse with water while cleaning if possible and then look for a water break free surface. If there is a water break, then continue scrubbing until a water break free surface is obtained and rinse again. STEP 3: After rinsing, wipe the surface with a fresh, clean dry cloth.
Insure the complete removal of all abrasive and loosened substrate residues. Allow the metal surface to dry before the coating application. Note: Wet cleaning is highly recommended. If water wet abrasive is not allowed due to sensitive components in the vicinity of the area to be treated, dry abrasive followed by a wipe with a clean water-damp wiper is recommended to remove cleaning residues. A surface clean of residue smut, etc. Do not twist or turn. Activate by holding the applicator tip down on the surface to be treated.
Press the pen tip down for 15 to 30 seconds to open the spring valve allowing Alodine to wet the applicator tip.
When the Alodine just wets the tip, release the downward pressure. Note: The operator must insure the tip does not become overly saturated with the treatment solution, especially when creating a coating for Class 3 applications.
Be sure to cover all edges. Note: Solution breaks de-wetting must not be observed. A void in the wet film indicates inadequate cleaning. If needed, repeat the cleaning. Firm strokes during application helps avoid de-wetting. Apply the second coat within 5 minutes after the first coat dries due to the fact that the treated surface becomes more hydrophobic as it ages.
The dried coating deposited will range from nearly colorless to a moderately dark brown color. STEP 4: Alodine can be allowed to air dry. Using warm air or a radiant source such as a heat lamp is allowed maximum recommended temperature is F 60C. A consumer hair dryer is ideal and will avoid overheating the surface. Do not disturb the wet film during drying; such as by excessive airflow or contact with the treated surface.
Note: An uneven appearance in the dry film is normal. Pre-warming the surface will give a significantly smoother appearance, and is recommended especially when the ambient temperature is less than 50F 10C. STEP 5: To recharge applicator tip, repeat the activation process.
STEP 6: Always replace the cap when not in use to avoid evaporation and contamination. Note: 1 For general purposes meaning non-military specification applications, Alodine may be used on ferrous metals and galvanized surfaces. Consult the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheets for safety and handling guidelines for the products listed in this bulletin.

Features Easy to use, cost effective touch-up and repair applicator Designed to save labor, material, and time with easy to use applicator Non-rinsing, dry-in-place technology Excellent paint adhesion and painted corrosion resistance Contains sufficient solution to treat up to 50 sq ft 4.
Heavy coating weights should be avoided for Class 3. The following table offers some guidance in obtaining the proper coating weight range and estimates expected coverage area per pen with a second coat applied over the first dry coat.
Light Coating Weight: Class 1A and 3. Felt tip damp. Wet film appearance similar to a common felt-tipped type marker. Dried appearance is nearly colorless. Expected coverage per pen is approximately 50 ft2. Moderate Coating Weight: Class 1A and 3. Felt tip moderately wet. Wet film appearance is heavy, but would not sag if held at a 90 degree angle. Expected coverage per pen is approximately 35 ft2. Felt tip very wet. Wet film appearance is very heavy and would sag and possibly drip if held at a 90 degree angle.
Expected coverage per pen is approximately 25 ft2. If the coating puddles or tends to run, an excessive coating weight may be obtained. Be especially aware of depressions on the surface where excessive treatment solution could collect. For economy and quality, the operator should be trained to keep the tip fairly moist- but not saturated with the treatment solution.
