Everbrite Chemicals is a well-reputed company engaged in the business of manufacturing metal surface treatment chemicals, electroplating chemicals, and industrial chemicals. We are experts in Nickel Electroplating, Bright chrome plating, zinc plating, copper plating, Brass plating, Phosphate, Hard Chrome & Conversion coatings. We provide our technical guidelines to install and control these processes economically, increase productivity, quality and profitability.
Nickel electroplating is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of nickel onto a metal object. Nickel plating provides a unique combination of corrosion and wears resistance. It can add brightness, luster, and a Glossy effect. It also provides excellent adhesion properties for subsequent coating layers, which is why nickel is often used as an ‘undercoat’ for other coatings, such as chromium.
The bright chrome process is determined by the bright nickel coating underneath the final electroplated chromium film that prevents the underlying nickel from tarnishing. The bright chrome does not have the variance of shades like satin chrome it just has one reflective finish. Chromium is a bluish-white metal that is quite lustrous in appearance. In itself,
chromium is resistant to corrosion in most atmospheres but tends to form microscopic cracks due to stress. This exposes portions of the base metal to corrosive environments. Hence, decorative chrome is almost always plated on top of either nickel or nickel-plated on copper. These underlying layers of copper and nickel are used to seal off the substrate so that the micro cracked chrome deposit does not become an avenue for corrosion.
Zinc plating is the process of covering substrate metals (like steel and iron, etc.) with a layer or coating of zinc to protect the substrate from corrosion. Acid zinc is a widely used plating technology known for its high efficiency, fast deposition, and superior covering power. However, acid zinc also provides good throwing power and thickness distribution.
Copper plating offers a variety of benefits due to its malleability, conductivity, corrosion resistance, lubricious and anti-bacterial qualities.
Copper plating can also be used as part of a dual system thanks to its compatibility with additional plating and coating processes.
A dual approach enables a surface to benefit from the characteristics of two differing coating/plating systems. At Surface Technology, for example, we regularly use copper together with nickel plating to provide high wear and corrosion-resistant surface. Copper plating consists of two types.
The application to the surfaces of metal objects (mainly steel) of a layer of brass several microns thick and consisting, for example, of 70 percent copper and 30 percent zinc. The coating is usually applied electrolytically by deposition of brass from an electroplating bath.
Brass plating is used to protect objects from corrosion, to provide strong bonds between steel and aluminum articles and rubber in the hot pressing process, and to create an intermediate layer (called the substratum) in nickel plating or tin plating of steel articles (which is more effective than direct coating with nickel or tin). Brass plating is a means of improving the antifriction properties of titanium and its alloys.
Phosphate conversion coating is a chemical treatment applied to steel parts that creates a thin adhering layer of iron, zinc, or manganese phosphates, to achieve corrosion resistance, lubrication, or as a foundation for subsequent coatings or painting.
It is one of the most common types of the conversion coating. The process is also called phosphate coating, phosphatization, phosphatizing, or phosphate. It is also known by the trade name Parkerizing, especially when applied to firearms and other military equipment, A phosphate coating is usually obtained by applying to the steel part a dilute solution of phosphate chemical. The solution may be applied by sponging, spraying, or immersion. Phosphate conversion coatings can also be used on aluminum, zinc, cadmium, silver, and tin.
A conversion coating is a chemical or electro-chemical treatment applied to manufactured parts that superficially converts the material into a thin adhering coating of an insoluble compound. These coatings are against corrosion, to improve the adherence of other coatings,
for lubrication, or just for decoration. Conversion coating consists of many types i.e.
Hard chrome plating is an electroplating process in which chromium is deposited from a chromic acid solution. The thickness of hard chrome plating ranges from 2 to 250µm. Chrome plating is used for wear and corrosion resistance in addition to its low friction characteristics.
