ALKALINE NON-CYANIDE BASED BRIGHTENER SYSTEMS

Accu-Labs 804

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs 804 is an improved brightener process that is typically used in alkaline non-cyanide zinc plating applications. This process produces bright, lustrous zinc plating with excellent throwing power. The deposit readily accepts all types of chromate conversion coatings. Accu-Labs 804 offers uniform thickness and brightness over normal rack and barrel current density ranges, depositing over 0.0005 inch thickness without compromising adhesion or ductility qualities.

The Accu-Labs 804 process uses a highly efficient, concentrated liquid brightener system to produce an exceptional zinc deposit with excellent throwing and superior covering properties. It is recommended for use on complex components and applications, such as computer cabinets. It performs equally well in barrel and rack installations, and offers compatibility with pollution control restrictions. This process does not contain any complexors and chelators.

Accu-Labs 940

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs 940 zinc plating process is an alkaline cyanide-free process that produces bright lustrous deposits over a wide current density range. The process is suitable for both rack and barrel plating operations.

Accu-Labs 940 brightener is an easy-to-use single additive system. The Accu-Labs 940 brightener product contains a balanced mixture of high-, mid-, and low-current density brightening agents as well as the conditioner and purifier components needed to maintain the zinc plating bath.

ACID CHLORIDE BASED BRIGHTENER SYSTEMS:

Accu-Labs 902

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs 902 is a highly concentrated, liquid addition agent that produces brilliant, level, ductile deposits from pure ammonium chloride electrolytes or mixed acid chloride electrolytes containing potassium and ammonium chloride. Accu-Labs 902 baths operate economically at low levels of zinc metal, approximately half that required in pure potassium electrolytes. These baths also operate at extremely high temperatures, up to 135 F., or 57 C.

Accu-Labs 920

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs 920 is an ammonia-free, bright acid chloride zinc plating process for rack and barrel plating that operates over a wide current density and temperature ranges with no cloud point present. This non-complexed system is ideally suited for easy waste treatment of waste streams.

Accu-Labs 923

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs 923 is a highly concentrated liquid addition agent for the deposition of brilliant, level, ductile deposits from pure ammonium chloride electrolytes or mixed acid chloride electrolytes containing potassium and ammonium chloride.

Accu-Labs 930 – Premium Blend Salts

Download Tech Data Sheet
The Accu-Labs 930 is a proprietary blend of chloride salts for the maintenance of acid chloride zinc processes.

Accu-Labs ZAC

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-Labs ZAC process is a highly concentrated, liquid addition agent for the deposition of brilliant, level, ductile deposits from mixed acid chloride electrolytes containing potassium and ammonium chloride. Accu-Labs ZAC baths are extremely low-foaming, and thereby, avoid staining processed work. These baths also protect post-plating processes from contamination.

Accu-Labs AccuZinc 19

Download Tech Data Sheet
AccuZinc 19 is a specially engineered chloride zinc plating system. This low organic system’s unique formulation provides excellent burn control and low internal stress deposits that are ideally suited for high output metal finishing facilities, meeting today’s high-performance criteria. AccuZinc 19 can be used for both barrel and rack applications in either no ammonia, full ammonia or low ammonia salt formulations.

SULFATE BASED BRIGHTENER SYSTEMS:

Accu-Labs 9000

Download Tech Data Sheet
Accu-labs 9000 is a highly concentrated additive system for use in sulfate based acid zinc processes that produces a uniform matte zinc deposit over a wide current density range.
