Technic Italgalvano has developed TechniBuffer IG, a boron-free pH buffer for nickel plating that the company says produces higher-quality results than boric-acid solutions.
Products Finishing talked to Process Technology president Jody Richards about her forward-thinking strategy, the future of the finishing industry and more.
This study investigated the addition of Cirrus Alumina Dopant™, a nanoparticle additive, to a variety of low phosphorus electroless nickel baths to evaluate the performance of the resulting nanocomposite coating as a potential replacement for hard chromium. The results offer a versatile substitute for hard chromium in a broad range of applications.
Doerken Corporation USA has hired Jacqueline Orow as its new marketing and portfolio implementation manager.
Electro-codeposition of MCrAlY Coatings for Advanced Gas Turbine Applications - 11th Quarterly Research Report
The aim of this research is to seek a sulfur-free plating solution for electro-codeposition of (Ni,Co)-CrAlY composite coatings. In this quarter, a sulfur-free, all-chloride plating solution was investigated to lower the sulfur content in the Ni-Co coating matrix. Optimized bath composition and the use of a wetting agent are critical to good results.
