Uyemura's Galvanic Rhodium Alloy Improves Durability
Rhodium coatings have improved durability with deposits being crack-free up to 1 μm.
Uyemura’s Rhoduna-Alloy 1 is the first galvanic rhodium alloy, formulated from rhodium and ruthenium. It saves 25% when compared to pure rhodium, the company says. Rhodium coatings have improved durability with deposits being crack-free up to 1 μm. Platinum-ruthenium 75/25 alloys are an alternative to palladium, while rhodium-platinum 50/50 alloys are suitable for jewelry and decorative pieces. For HF applications, Miralloy 2851 is an alternative to silver, palladium and nickel, and is suitable as a diffusion barrier layer. NIPHOS electrolytic nickel is said to deliver a bright RoHS finish with corrosion properties equal to electroless nickel.

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.
