MacDermid Enthone Supports Folds of Honor
Charity provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members.
MacDermid Enthone Industrial Solutions held a customer appreciation event on June 4 that raised $20,000 for Folds of Honor, a charity that provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members.
The event took place at Joe’s Live at Parkway Bank Park in Rosemont, Illinois, during the SUR/FIN conference and trade show. The event featured a band, raffles and an auction with all proceeds going to Folds of Honor.
The main task of this work was to study the influence of the different parameters on the electrolytic coloring process for aluminum.
This paper discusses recent research work on the development of a functional trivalent chromium plating process from a trivalent-based electrolyte to replace hexavalent chromium plating. Hexavalent chromium plating has been used for many years to provide hard, durable coatings with excellent wear and corrosion resistance properties. However, hexavalent chromium baths have come under increasing scrutiny due to the toxic nature of the bath, effects on the environment and workers’ health. In this paper are results from our development program aimed at achieving properties comparable to existing hexavalent chromium plating for functional applications. Specifically, recent efforts in plating chromium on the internal surfaces of cylindrical parts will be presented, as well as wear test data.
