New from Umicore Galvanotechnik is Palluna ACF-100, an ammonia- and chloride-free high-speed electrolyte for deposition of a bright palladium-nickel alloy without the equipment corrosion and odors associated with ammonia-containing chemistries. Designed for use in reel-to-reel plating and tab plater continuous processing lines, the system nominally deposits alloy coatings containing 80% palladium. Deposit composition is said to remain constant over the entire applicable current density range, and deposits are light, white and extremely ductile with ~5 % breaking elongation. The company says the process is very stable, with chemistry remaining within tolerance limits and providing stable metal deposition rates between 24 and 27 mg/A·min even above 10 metal turnovers.

    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.
