New Compliant Chemistry Logo

The most successful compliant chemistry line of products has an updated new look for 2011. Pavco is excited to release our new HyPro™ logo for immediate use on all products that are part of the growing HyPro™ family.

HyPro™ has long been a leading brand name for metal finishers that seek compliant chemistries across a wide range of industry. Now more then ever these compliant chemistries are also required to be true "high performance" coatings in addition to their inherent environmental advantages, which the new logo is meant to highlight. From conversion coatings to organic top coats, the growing HyPro™ family of products can meet all of your compliant chemistry needs. Please keep a look out for a number of new additions to the HyPro™ line-up over the next few months that service Pavco's growing list of to accompany the new logo.

Industry Leading Chloride Zinc Nickel

Just as the ad says, innovation this dramatic rarely comes around. 

Pavco's NiClipse™ chloride zinc nickel is superior to traditional alkaline zinc nickel by plating hardened steel, malleable and cast metals without a chloride zinc strike. NiClipse™ also p lates with 95% efficiency of deposition versus 45-50% while producing brighter deposits and effectively plates controlled alloys for both 6-8% nickel requirements and 10-15% applications with simple operating adjustments.  

In comparison to competitive chloride zinc systems, NiClipse™ offers incredible ductility, plates in a wide temperature range of 90-130°F, can save money by running at very low nickel levels and does not require dual rectification.   For more information, please contact your local Pavco representative.
