Chemical film coating is also referred to as Chem Film, Chromate Conversion, Iridite and Alodine. These are essentially the same process, the application of a chromate conversion coating on aluminum. Chem film coating produces a finish which:
1. protects from corrosion;
2. assures good paint adhesion; and
3. conducts electricity.

Chem Film provides less corrosion resistance than other finishes such as anodizing, and does not resist abrasion.
