Iridite is a brand name for the chemical dip used for Mil-C-5541 chromate conversion coating on aluminum. It's basically a material with maybe 1 to 2 percent chromic acid and some other stabilizers, accelerators, etc. But these processes are proprietary and no one will tell you how to formulate them-- only where to buy them.
