UCM presents ALMAGIC in the Seminar «Frontiers in Materials»

Last October, Ph.D. Ewa Wierzbicka. presented the work developed by the UCM group in the ALMAGIC project. They have been developing environmentally friendly (without Cr6) electrochemical coatings for aluminium and magnesium. The complete talk can be seen at: And a short article based on this talk will be published in the journal of the Spanish Society of Materials (SOCIEMAT) in December 2018.


ALMAGIC project continues with their Second Review Meeting


The ALMAGIC held its second review meeting on 15-16th May 2018 at HENKEL´s premises in Düsseldorf (Germany).

The progress of the project in the study of the substitution of hexavalent chromium in the aerospace materials by developing alternative conversion coatings for aluminium and magnesium was shown. And the meeting was completed with a workshop about on paintings presented by Peter Visser of AkzoNobel.

ALMAGIC featured at the In2Science Magazine


ALMAGIC is mentioned in the article “Sleepless at the microscope: the exhaustive search for chromate replacements” of the In2Science magazine. Dr Sviatlana Lamaka, a scientist at the Magnesium Innovation Centre at HZG, speaks about her researches of new coating additives as part of the ALMAGIC project (“Aluminium and Magnesium Alloys Green Innovative Coatings”).
