A group of Milwaukee-area plating and finishing shops helped St Joseph Academy with their annual golf outing, raising more than $45,000 to be used for building expansion.

 

St Joseph Academy is a school and daycare on Milwaukee’s south side. Most students come from low-income families that want a good faith-based education for their children. SJA does a terrific job with schoolwork and an even better job of teaching the children how to be loving, caring, and helpful human beings.

 

Reliable Plating Works president Jaime Maliszewski has chaired the golf outing for the past 15 years, and Cory Savage of Savage Solutions has been his co-chair for the past two years. Jaime and Cory, with a group of dedicated committee members, worked hard to make this event a success. 132 golfers, along with numerous sponsors, showed tremendous charity to the school. Donations helped raise over $45,000, which will be used to fund a major building expansion at SJA!

 

RPW and Elite had four teams at the event, and many of their customers and suppliers played as well. Other sponsors included Staffing Partners, Polco Metal Finishing, Savage Solutions, Hays Companies, Florida Cirtech, ChromeTech, First Business Bank, Waterstone Bank, Enthone, PNC Bank, Hunter Chemical, Ward & Kennedy, Quarles & Brady, Milport Chemical, John Haske, Metal Finishing Solutions, Micron Metal Finishing, So Clean Solutions, Scientific Control Labs, Midwest Finishing Systems, Inc., Phil Devlin and Sigma Environmental.

    Many industries that require innovative solutions in cost reduction and weight savings are turning to aluminum as a substitute for stainless steel and other carbon steel alloys for parts and components.

    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.
