Electroless Gold, Miralloy, Tin Nickel Plating and More!
– are available for various requirements related to
– most likely the
widest used electroless gold in the
process has been widely used in North
for more than 16 years. It is the most stable
gold chemistry known.
– the most sophisticated platinized
anodes available. Typical anodes are
(leaving micro-pores) or clad (leaving
micro-cracks). With the
aggressive nature of gold or rhodium
to shorten the
anode’s life, these anodes are plated using
a unique molten platinum
method – thus avoiding cracks
and pores and extending service life.
are available in a combination of
mesh sizes, platinum
thicknesses, and single or double-sided coatings.
– About 20% of the world’s
population has a skin
reaction to nickel metal. The longer
this metal is in contact with the
person’s skin, the more likely
they are to experience a burn –
worsens as the contact continues.
The perfect alternative is
Miralloy – an electroplating alloy
combination of tin, copper, zinc.
It is used
world-wide for zippers, buttons, bra clasps, and is sometimes
referred to as “white
bronze”. It doesn’t
tarnish and stands up well to
washing/drying. This process is also available in a
white version – the most commonly used variation plated
in North America.
Miralloy also has
gained wide acceptance for plating
connectors, as a replacement
for silver (it is tarnish-free) and as a replacement for
palladium (due to lower
cost). It is available in rack
or barrel versions.
SN1 Tin-nickel Plating Process - provides a bright, durable finish with a distinctive reddish layer that's ideal for decorative applications. Plating over bright nickel or satin nickel creates a distinctively warm appearance; no top-coating needed. Corrosion protection is superior to general tin-cobalt plating. SN1 has excellent bath stability for highest color consistency, and excellent throwing power, too, so it's applicable to rack and barrel plating.
|Umicore Electrolytic Palladium 457
– is suitable for decorative
and electronic applications. Slightly alkaline (7.7 pH) palladium electrolyte
produces high-gloss, low-porosity coatings that are bendable and crack-free,
up to 3 μm. Excellent corrosion resistance; stable electrolyte has a wide
operating range of current density. Compatible with rack and barrel
application; ideal for wire connectors, wire leads, automotive engine
components and decorative parts, cabinet hardware, military equipment,
printed circuit boards
Non Mist-L Plating Anti-mist Additive is an anti-mist
additive for chromium platers that is EPA-compliant. This anti-mist
additive forms a strong foam blanket that reduces the bath’s surface
tension, preventing the migration of dangerous mists. Non Mist L also
conserves plating solutions by minimizing evaporative losses and
drag-out. Chromic acid concentrations in the plating bath are kept
low and so is waste treatment.
Non Mist L plating anti-mist additive is highly effective in small amounts,
and has no negative effects on plating. It has desirable break-down
characteristics and won’t produce excessive foam. It is an excellent
product for improving shop environmental conditions and protecting
workers and equipment from chromium mist pollution.
TD – from the
developers of Rhodium J-1 and J-2,
the new TD version produces the whitest,
brightest, most reflective
rhodium plating available.
Nickstar Black Nickel –
Nickstar – a decorative black nickel
technology that deposits a thin, and highly uniform over-coat of black
nickel-zinc alloy, preserving the substrate's brightness and
producing an exceptionally rich black nickel finish.
– the highest throw electrolytic
nickel process available,
now used in many diverse industry
– electrolytic nickel-phos systems
that can replace gold
plating for some electronic connectors
due to its exceptional
corrosion resistance. These processes
are available in reel-reel
(Niphos 965) and rack/barrel/vibratory
(Niphos 966) formulations.
– tin/zinc alloy process that
produces 80/20 or 70/30
alloys. Good distribution, weldability
and solderability; provides
excellent corrosion protection for
iron and iron alloys.
RIP Au-II – widely
used process for stripping gold from
plated parts, at room temperature.
The most widely used process at
and platers throughout North America.
Rip Palladium Additive
– this economical step allows
the above process to easily convert
to a palladium stripper.
