As Seen In Products Finishing

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.

Atotech USA Surpasses 3 Million Safe Work Hours
The Rock Hill, South Carolina-based company says it is continually looking for ways to improve the safety culture of our workplace. 

Offering a uniform surface even after mechanical stress, Zintek One is well-suited for bolts, screws, springs and parts used in construction, automotive and heavy industry applications.

One-Layer Zinc Flake Base Coat for Fastener Protection
Atotech’s silver inorganic zinc flake base coat eliminates the need for a second coat.

The BluCr process utilizes either mixed metal oxide or graphite inert anodes for plating, enabling the hard chrome plating industry to move away from the use of toxic lead alloy anodes.

Atotech Launches Trivalent Chromium Hard Chrome Plating Process
Atotech launches BluCr, an industrial trivalent chromium hard chrome plating process designed as a safe alternative to hexavalent hard chrome plating.

Zintek One, Atotech’s silver inorganic zinc flake base coat, is designed to offer reliable corrosion protection with only a single layer

Atotech’s Silver Zinc Flake Base Coat Eliminates Need for Second Layer
Zintek One, Atotech’s silver inorganic zinc flake base coat, is designed to offer reliable corrosion protection with only a single layer.

Atotech Acquires Pegastech Plating on Plastics Technology
Pegastech has developed a technology for plating on plastics that does not use hexavalent chromium or palladium compounds for the pretreatment of polymers prior to electroplating.
