CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
Clean repaired surface.
Caulk around repair patch (1) in accordance with WP 0025.
Apply alodine solution. Apply the alodine solution with a brush, paint spray gun, cellulose sponge, etc.,
to the cleaned and rinsed aluminum surface, liberally, quickly and evenly. Allow it to act from 1 to 5
minutes before rinsing.
The solution should be applied to only as much surface as can be coated
and rinsed before the alodine solution dries.
Proceed with the coating and rinsing until the entire surface is coated with alodine.
Rinse. Before the alodine solution dries, wipe it from the surface with a clean cloth or sponge wet with
clean water. The alodine solution may also be rinsed from the surface with clean water from a hose.
Dry. After the rinsing has been finished, allow the work to air dry. Drying can be speeded by wiping with
clean, dry rags. Clean, dry, compressed air should be used to blow moisture from joints, depressions,
etc., and to speed the drying. When the surface is entirely dry, the part is ready for service without further
treatment, or if desired, it may be painted in accordance with manufacturer's directions.
