Technic (Cranston, R.I.) has announced the release of its new cyanide-free silver plating process chemistry Technisilver Cyless II W, designed for general metal finishing, decorative and electronic component/connector applications. Cyless II W addresses the global demand for an environmentally-safe, high-performance silver process.
While many cyanide-free silver plating products suffer from a yellowish or dull deposit appearance, Technisilver Cyless II-W is said to produce a bright, non-yellow appearance with even distribution. Easily controlled adjustments reportedly provide a bright or semi-bright finish, as desired.
Technic expects the non-cyanide process to be well-received in manufacturing regions around the world where environmental regulations have become more stringent.

Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
