Chromium-free Etching and Palladium-free Plating of Plastics
Plastics are replacing metals in the manufacture of many parts, and quite often there is a need for metallic coatings on the plastics and other non-conductors. This paper will describe new processes of preparing ABS plastic substrates for subsequent metallization. A process replacing the traditional chromic acid etching step with a room-temperature, environmentally friendly etchant is described. Further, to address the high cost of palladium, a non-precious-metal activator has been developed that can obtain uniform, adherent metallic coatings on plastic substrates.
Hex Chromium-Free Sealants for Defense and Aerospace
Results of second phase of research conducted by top defense contractors.
Toxic Heavy Metal Free Stabilized Electroless Nickel Processes
This paper will introduce an advanced alternative to Pb and Cd-free electroless nickel processes, which is completely free of toxic heavy metal (THM) stabilizers. The process and deposit characteristics will be discussed and compared to the traditionally Pb stabilized electroless nickel.
Greener Hard Chromium Plating
By improving tribological properties as well as corrosion resistance, hard chromium plating can lower energy consumption of moving parts and machinery, reduce the need to replace parts frequently, leading to reduced waste and improved efficiency.
The Electroless Deposition of Nickel-Phosphorus-Tungsten Alloys
This paper describes the successful electroless co-deposition of tungsten within a nickel-phosphorus matrix to yield several advantageous properties.
