Abstract : A reproducible and accurate radioactive tracer procedure using the isotope chromium-51 has been developed to measure the 'leaching' rates, in situ, of chromium from chemically chromated aluminum surfaces. Studies of the rates of solution are reported and an interpretation of these results is presented. (Author)
