The Adhesion of Electrodeposits to Plastics
The 1966 Carl E. Huessner Gold Medal Award was given to Dr. Edward Saubestre and co-workers for Best Paper appearing in Plating in 1965, and their paper is republished here in a series on the AES/AESF/NASF Best Paper Awards. This paper is a comprehensive treatise on the Jacquet peel test, a primary test method for determining adhesion on plated plastics.
The Study of Copper Anodes in Acid and Cyanide Plating Baths
The 1956 Carl E. Huessner Gold Medal Award was given to Charles Faust and William H Safranek for Best Paper appearing in Plating or the AES Technical Proceedings in 1955, and their paper is republished here in a series on the AES/AESF/NASF Best Paper Awards. Their work involves an evaluation of anodes for copper plating at the time when OFHC anodes were first emerging in use.
Methods and Formulas to Determine Internal Deposit Stress in Applied Metallic Coatings
Internal stress exists in electroplated and chemically applied metallic coatings. This paper reviews the test procedures for measuring deposit stress and the formulas used to calculate stress values. Many formulas used require modification to obtain actual internal stress values. Errors in this regard are examined and common mistakes are explained.
