Originally published in 1978, this paper was the first of several on AES Research Project #41, a study of plating on aluminum, at the National Institute for Science and Technology. A review of immersion pretreatments for the plating on aluminum is presented. The zincate pretreatments dominate the literature, but innovations were reported which offer improved adhesion and corrosion performance. Finally, an updated bio on Dr. Lashmore’s work through the years is offered.
After providing electropolishing services to the industrial manufacturing industry for more than 20 years, Custom Fab Solutions has announced it is expanding its offerings to additional markets including food and beverage, medical devices and aerospace.
