Cyanide-free Cadmium Plating

Development Research on Environmentally Friendly Cyanide-free Cadmium Plating Novel Civil-military Integration Process

— Jeffrey Lai & Chong-wu Guo , Guangzhou Ultra Union Chemicals Ltd., P.R. China

Novel cyanide-free cadmium plating process was developed. Cadmium chloride is 25~35 g/L, coordination agent 100~140 g/L, potassium chloride 140~180 g/L, brightener 1.5~2.5 mL/L, adjuvant agent 25~35 mL/L, pH 6.0~7.0. Temperature is 15~35 ℃,and J k = 0.5~1.5 A/dm² in the rack plating bath. Temperature is 15~30 ℃,and bath voltage 4~7 V in the barrel plating bath, and the barrel revolving speed is 3~5 r/min.

Environmental Challenges

Nano Tech Gone Mad ??

— Mr. Darrell J. Reeve, UNEP / UNIDO Consultant in Metal Finishing

Only a few years ago, engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) were unheard of. Now they are everywhere in many aspects of life and industrial manufacturing technologies, including Surface Finishing. It is estimated that nano technology in industry was worth over 1 trillion dollars in 2015 and continues to grow rapidly. It has been said that’ nano technology is one of mankind’s biggest hopes for technological progress in the 21st century. It promises to revolutionize manufacturing, materials science, computers, medical devices and much more.’ Nano materials are not just small crystals but intermediate between bulk and molecular materials that exhibit unique magnetic, electrical, optical, mechanical, structural and chemical properties.
