Crista Chemical Company in Santee, California has developed an industrial method of plating titanium on metallic and nonmetallic materials. In May 2015, Crista Chemical Co. received a patent for the chemical process of titanium electroplating.

 

The company said its titanium plated materials offers various advantages versus other metal coatings, including high corrosion resistance, high yield strength (r high strength-to-density ratio, wear resistance, high resilience and stiffness at room temperature as well as at elevated temperature up to 200C, and its a green technology, as titanium is nontoxic and non-allergenic

 

Crista Chemical said the process has the ability to electroplate metals and polymers such as PEEK, ABS, PCABS, ULTEM, carbon fiber composites and carbon foam with electrolytic copper, turbo Ni/NanoNi-Co-P/alloys, electroless nickel-high phosphorus and titanium alloys.

 

The company says this patented process allows Crista Chemical to coat titanium alloys on unconventional substrates such as plastic, carbon fiber, Kevlar and aluminum, and that this new technology makes titanium coating a superior technology for a variety of industries, including high efficiency batteries, medical applications, biotechnology, aerospace, defense, sports and automotive.
