"Plating on plastics books?"





February 18, 2010

Hello,

As a chemist in a plating car industry specialized on plating on plastic in France, I search recent books related to the plating on plastic to help me.
We use a sulfochromic etch and I would like to know a different way to substitute for it.

Moreover, Boric acid will pass at the end of this year as a carcinogenic product and I would like also to find a way to substitute it because of the law.

Information about new nickel and chromium III technologies will help me a lot to forecast new process in the aim to totally eliminate Chromium VI in the factory.

Thanks in advance for your advise.

Denis

Hi, Marandet. There are gaseous etch machines available for use in plating on plastic that will eliminate the need for the chromic acid wet etch.

I find it impossible to believe that boric acid will be ruled a carcinogen since it is widely used in eyewashes, vaginal douches, anti-yeast suppositories and other personal products, and is perhaps the most widely used buffering solution in industry. Please provide a link to some information about that.

Journals such as Metal Finishing magazine and Plating & Surface Finishing should help keep you updated on progress and substitutes in this field. Good luck.
