Is it possible to achieve a conversion coating by brush or swab (for small areas) to match MIL-C-5541 class 3 or similar to - def-stan 03-18. If so how and who manufactures the materials?

We are using chemical named CHROMAL that can be used in 3 ways of dipping, swabbing , brushing & spraying. Fulfills MIL standard (3 classes). The coating can be adjusted from clear up to dark ,according to alloy being processed.

Just put on rubber rubber gloves [on eBay or Amazon affil links] , use a Cotton Swab, or an old cloth, swab on some of the deox solution from the deox tank, then rinse, then using 4 times concentration of whatever chromate you have, swab it on until the yellow color does not wipe off, let cure 24 hours, ship.

We carry out this process on a large number of parts, the solution we use is alocrom 1200 made up to double strength, pre-clean the parts brush on until the correct shade is achieved and rinse off, depending on the size of parts you can air dry or blow dry.
