Chromate in Chemical Conversions on Aluminum
I am looking for a MIL and/or industry spec that covers the chromate (specifically clear and yellow) in chemical conversion coatings on aluminum. Initially I thought it was covered in
Mil-C-5541 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet]E, but on reading it I did not see a referance to any chromate. Am I missing something?

The MIL-C-5541 part is correct; but...

- for the required properties of the chemicals to accomplish it, see MIL-C-81706
- for a list of qualified commercial products see QPL-81706.
