EFFECT ON ALUMINIUM
The question of the effect of ROCKITE CEMENT on aluminium metal has been raised many times in view of the growing popularity of ornamental aluminium. Since aluminium is attacked by Portland cement, it is only natural to question whether ROCKITE should also have such an effect.
We're happy to state that ROCKITE has no corrosive effect whatever on aluminium. As a matter of fact, every dishwasher knows that their aluminium kitchen utensils are attacked by strong alkaline cleaners. Therefore, they avoid them in their cleaning process. Incidentally, Portland cement is alkaline - ROCKITE CEMENT is not.
A test was made with one end of a length of aluminium moulding embedded in a patty of ROCKITE CEMENT. The specimen was then subjected to a water bath intermittently for four months. At the end of that period, there was no indication that the aluminium had been attacked in any manner whatever, and for all practical purposes it appeared to be in precisely the same condition as it was when the test was begun.
This test, together with the fact that ROCKITE CEMENT has continued to be used quite extensively for fastening aluminium throughout the country, corroborates our contention that ROCKITE has no injurious effect on aluminium and that its use in conjunction with aluminium articles is quite safe.
ROCKITE definitely has no effect on aluminium. ROCKITE not only offers the simplest, easiest, and strongest anchoring medium known today but also eliminates the necessity of protecting ornamental aluminium from the corrosive attack of Portland Cement and other anchoring products.
