Investigations were conducted into the sodium zincate solution used for treating aluminum prior to its being plated. Measurements of the adhesion of the nickel plate to aluminum and its alloys were done to check the effect of modifications made to this solution.
Colorless lubricant has properties of a topcoat, but also increases the corrosion protection and influences both the coefficients of friction and thread-forming torque.
This paper describes several next-generation approaches to increasing the corrosion-resistance of electroplated articles using various methods in the search for finishes to replace the Ni/Au industry standard.

Technological advances in electronics manufacturing and the design of automobiles have brought about a trend toward very narrow specifications and increasingly stringent requirements on the quality of electrodeposited layers of nickel.

This is a re-publication of the 1992 AESF Gold Medal Award paper for best paper published in Plating & Surface Finishing in 1991. It introduces a then-new technique for repairing near-opens (constrictions) in the wiring on printed circuit boards has been developed.

In the December 1992 issue of Plating and Surface Finishing, a series of articles was published, predicting the future of the global surface finishing industry in the 21st century, then due to arrive in less than a decade.
