MacDermid Showcased New Evolve, Eclipse and ZinKlad At Sur/Fin

22. July 2014

 

 

MacDermid Inc. exhibited once again at the NASF Sur/Fin Convention in Cleveland, OH on June 9-11. Their focus this year was on the OEM market and their innovation for technology that will meet tomorrow's needs. The booth incorporated a large map which highlighted MacDermid’s global OEM support infrastructure.

 

MacDermid was fortunate to have a Freightliner aluminum door frame that was supplied by Henrob in their booth. It displayed self-piercing rivets that are plated with our MacuGuard ALMAC (Aluminum Zinc Tin).

 

The remainder of the booth focused on individual product areas such as:

Evolve, their latest pretreatment system that is free from chromic acid and other substances of very high concern

 

Electroless Nickel - Eclipse (black EN), LMO (low metal operation) products and their Niklad ELV 835 low, medium phos process

 

ZinKlad, their high performance hexavalent chromium free coating that has a proven consistent quality and global network of approved applicators

 

Terry Clarke presented a paper on, "The Challenge to Replace Hexavalent Chromium for Plating on Plastics" which was well received by all.

 

MacDermid also had the opportunity to entertain customers at the Market Garden Brewery, where they received a tour of the facility while enjoying samples of their in-house brewed beer and ale.

 

Once everyone had a chance to taste the beer and view the brewery, the group moved to the Speakeasy Pub in McNulty's Bier Market for dinner and acoustical music provided by Cleveland's own Pete Tompkins.

PRAB Adds Evaled Evaporative Line, Enters Wastewater Treatment Sector

17. July 2014
 

 

PRAB, which develops material handling and chip and fluid management solutions for manufacturers, has expanded into wastewater treatment and introducing its partnership with  Italian company Veolia to market and support the exclusive Evaled line of evaporative technology in North America.

 

Wastewater treatment through evaporation is an efficient, clean, chemical free way to separate emulsified oils and suspended solids from wastewater, said Tim Hanna, Managing Director of PRAB Fluid Filtration-Wastewater Treatment Division.

 

Evaporation is selected for wastewater treatment applications when other filtration methods, such as Ultrafiltration, cannot reduce the level of VOC or other compounds contaminating wastewater. The evaporation process breaks the unwanted compounds and cleanly separates it from wastewater, allowing for high efficiency water reclamation and solids extraction.

 

PRAB has published a new brochure on Fluid Filtration that can be downloaded HERE.
