Van Der Horst Bath for Depositing Fe


We are looking for information on a "Van Der Horst" bath for depositing Iron (bath composition, operating parameters, etc.)

Page 266 of the Metal Finishing Guidebook Directory year 2000 edition. Specific on the Van der Horst bath, page 268.

I was looking for this very same information. Amazon, and ebay don't have that issue, and neither does the Cleveland Public Library.

I was able to also find the article online (while over priced, it can be purchased with a credit card) at

They want 31.50 for it, which is high, other sites may have it cheaper.

Actually disregard the above -- I purchased the article, and all it says is how great the bath is, and that all of its information is proprietary.

I have the 2005 edition, and it says exactly the same thing, even word for word.

Hi, Mike. Sorry that you got tagged for that download. The article appears to be in all issues of the Metal Finishing Guidebook from at least 1997 through at least 2007 except 2004 from which it was omitted (perhaps accidentally).

I, too, object to the way the Van Der Horst bath is glorified in the article. That sort of treatment belongs in a sales brochure, not a text book, let alone science literature you were charged over $30 for :-)
