Process Removes Paint from Hooks, Racks, Part Rejects
Atotech’s Master Remover 7000 is said to be a highly efficient and sustainable paint-removal process.

Atotech Alumseal 611 zincate process

Zincate for Aluminum Alloys Extends EN Bath Life
Atotech’s Alumseal 611 zincate process is designed to produce very thin zinc coatings that reduce the amount of zinc contamination in the electroless nickel bath and eliminate the need for an EN strike bath.

Atotech EcoTri One passivate

Thick-Film Passivate Protects Both Zinc and Zinc-Nickel
Atotech’s EcoTri One is a fluoride-free, iridescent, thick-film passivate that provides improved corrosion protection for both zinc and zinc-nickel, requiring only one passivate tank in the plating line for parts plated with both elements.

Electroless nickel plating

Stress in Electroless Nickel Coatings
Many factors can impact internal stress, but tests show bath age and deposition rate are the biggest influencers.

Controlling the Quality of Trivalent Chromium Passivates
Atotech’s Andrew Pfeifer presents four options for controlling contaminates in passivate baths.

Atotech BluCr trivalent hard-chrome plating process

Trivalent Hard-Chrome Process Eliminates Hex-Chrome Risks
Atotech’s BluCr is a trivalent hard-chrome plating process, offering the wear resistance and corrosion protection of hard-chrome without the hazards and risks of hexavalent chromium.
