Asterion will showcase its RoHS-compliant Asterion Ultra alkaline zinc systems, designed to provide corrosion protection while reducing rejects, increasing productivity and enhancing appearance. Each system includes TechniBrite Ultra Zn alkaline zinc, which is formulated to produce bright, ductile deposits with uniform and precise thickness distributions over a wide current density range. Delivering exceptional chromate adhesion, the coating is highly tolerant to zinc brightener levels and temperature conditions, the company says.

Suited for both rack and barrel operations without burning, the systems also feature UltraPass trivalent passivates for high neutral salt spray results. UltraSeal sealants provide added corrosion protection.
