Atotech Holds POP Summit For Customers

19. April 2014

Atotech held their second Plating on Plastics (POP) summit in Rock Hill, SC on Tuesday, April 15.


The company provided several technical presentations on POP and decorative plating and introduced their new Cr(VI)-free etch technology. The fully Cr(VI)-free technology has already been successfully qualified in the plating line at the Atotech TechCenters in Berlin, Germany under production scale conditions. The Cr(VI)-free technology meets the automotive, sanitary and consumer goods industries’ requirements in terms of cosmetic appearance, adhesion and thermocycle tests.


Following Atotech’s standard new products’ development procedure, the Cr(VI)-free etch process is at present ongoing field testing, delivering encouraging results.


In addition to speakers from senior Atotech worldwide management, the event included presentations from Bing C. Xu, Enterprise Materials Management Program Manager, Ford Motor Company and Federico Gambina, Materials Science Engineer, Honda R&D Americas.
