The Accu-Labs 965 acid sulfate cadmium plating process is suitable for both rack and barrel operations. Some sintered iron parts have been successfully plated in rack installation. The Accu-Labs 965 process is based on cadmium sulfate salt and sulfuric acid as the maintenance acid. The chemistry of the Accu-Labs 965 process is maintained merely by controlling the amount of “free” sulfuric acid and the area of the cadmium metal anodes. The brightener additive system consists of entirely water soluble non-toxic organic compounds. The use of Accu-Labs 965-B and 965-C is very cost effective for barrel as well as rack plating operations.

LCF Cadmium Plating
