Asterion says its Technibrite ALK CU 50, which will be on display at Sur/Fin 2011, is not the standard alkaline con-cyanide copper process. With a wide operating range, this process may be used as a conventional copper strike or as a heavy copper plate. The fine-grained deposit allows for excellent post copper bright work without buffing. The company says the formulation promotes complete adhesion on ferrous, zincated aluminum, zinc die-cast, and "pot metal." and is an alternative to conventional cyanide copper plating for both captive and job shop facilities.
