Session 8: Innovations for Improving Productivity
A timely presentation on Electroless Nickel - PTFE which is a growing sector of the plating industry but one that is also facing a number of challenges due to evolving regulations as well as general contemporary challenges inherent in the plating industry.
Advances in Surface Finishing Technology
Technology Responses to REACh/Regulations
This paper will present the state of the art in the EN-PTFE industry. The presentation will include environmental, health, safety, regulatory, and performance factors of such nickel Teflon coating.
Topics will include:
• Avoidance of PFOA, PFOS, and fluorinated surfactants
• Meeting relevant regulations
• Operating at low metal concentrations in the plating bath for less drag out and waste
• Optimizing plating bath life for savings and waste reduction
