Uyemura Niphos 968 Features Corrosion Resistance
Appears in Print as: 'Nickel Technology Features Corrosion Resistance'
Uyemura will showcase a number of products at SUR/FIN 2019, including Arguna 630, Miralloy and Semi-bright alkaline copper.
Uyemura International Corporation’s Niphos 968 electrolytic nickel produces a bright, RoHS finish with corrosion properties equal to electroless nickel and. It is said to accommodate as much as 13 percent phosphorus for high hardenability.
The company’s Arguna 630 has prebaked hardness of as much as 170 vickers and is designed to replace hard gold in automotive applications and enhance silver contact wearability. Miralloy is said to be an alternative to silver, palladium and nickel. It is also cyanide free, according to the company. It deposits as much as 8 mircons with resistance to abrasion and corrosion.
A KHW-NC is a semi-bright alkaline copper that plates onto aluminum and eliminates double zincating. BlackNight offers low L values, low reflectance, dense topography and hardness at 600-800 HV.
Evaluation of Atmospheric Corrosion on Electroplated Zinc and Zinc-Nickel Coatings by Electrical Resistance (ER) Monitoring
This paper is a peer-reviewed and edited version of a presentation delivered at NASF Sur/Fin 2013 in Rosemont, Ill., on June 12, 2013.
This paper highlights two case studies of manufacturers that have replaced, or done studies to replace, stainless steel with electroless nickel-plated mild steel. In both cases, cost savings could be realized while maintaining or improving product quality.
This paper provides processors with an extensive troubleshooting tool when conversion coating failures are encountered.
