DuPont will showcase new process solutions for plastic metallization and component finishing in November at SUR/FIN 2021, a conference and trade show dedicated to the surface technology industry.

The major global markets that utilize plastic metallization and component finishing processes are in a period of significant change, where substitution of mature process technology is driving innovation and opportunity, as well as the demand for improved performance, cost and elimination of toxic substances, the company says.

In response to these dynamics, DuPont is launching several novel products to satisfy high performance demands, while providing operational, cost and environmental advantages, it adds. These include:

  • Ecoposit CF-800 chrome-free etch, a REACH-compliant pretreatment for ABS and ABS-PC plastic metallization.
  • Ecoposit HT 95 High throw, low stress acid copper, designed for optimum performance with chrome-free pretreatment.
  • Ecoposit XF 1000, a formaldehyde-free, uniquely stable electroless copper, enabling replacement of electroless nickel and strike, thereby eliminating phosphates, borates and ammonia.
  • Nikal BF 100, a high-performance boric acid-free nickel electrolyte that produces corrosion resistance improvement, with high throw, higher CD range and reduced deposit stress.
  • Ronastan NPH-100, a neutral pH electrolytic tin designed for passive component terminals and pH sensitive dielectrics.
  • Silveron GT-210, a cyanide-free silver electrolyte producing deposits exhibiting very low friction and wear characteristics.
  • Solderon ST-400 high speed matte tin, providing 40% higher plating speed, simplified packaging and analysis, with superior electrolyte stability and deposit performance.
  • Teleposit 8000, designed to metallize filled and unfilled LCP substrates, enabling consistent metal coverage and adhesion without the use of abrasive mechanical techniques.

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
