Enthone says its Autronex ICN-1000 nickel-hardened gold process is production-proven to significantly reduce gold consumption, while preventing gold bleed out in low current density areas. Autronex ICN-1000 produces uniform, mirror-bright yellow deposits that exhibit low porosity and a high purity rate, with wear and corrosion resistance.

Autronex ICN-1000 is designed for all reel-to-reel applications, including spot, stripe, jet and brush, as well as controlled depth immersion and automatic tab plating applications. The process meets the requirements of MIL G 45204 C Type 1 Grade C.

Autronex ICN-1000 may be adjusted with Autronex Ni Barrier Controller to enhance area selectivity and control of the level of nickel barrier performance. Autronex ICN-1000 is designed for use with Enthone Lectro-NIC electrolytic nickel processes and Enprep pretreatment.
