Abstract

Chemically induced copper plating of various products is typically accomplished by immersion in a plating bath with the product held in stainless steel product holders. This immersion results in the unwanted coating of the holders with copper which not only reduces the chemicals used in plating but the holders must be periodically cleaned. This undesirable plating is reduced when the stainless steel holders are coated with a layer of Halar.

Halar Coated Additive Process Baskets

Chemically induced copper plating of various products is typically accomplished by immersion in a plating bath with the product held in stainless steel product holders. This immersion results in the unwanted coating of the holders with copper which not only reduces the chemicals used in plating but the holders must be periodically cleaned. This undesirable plating is reduced when the stainless steel holders are coated with a layer of Halar.

The process holders are coated by a nominal thickness of .020 Halar using an electrostatic process. The Halar is compatible with the plating process and results in a significant reduction of copper plating to the product holders.
