Abstract Number:

43

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.‎

Topics:

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

ADVANCES IN ENVIRONMENTAL, HEALTH, SAFETY, REGULATORY ‎COMPLIANCE AND ‎PERFORMANCE OF ELECTROLESS NICKEL – PTFE ‎COATING
