LumiShield Technologies Inc. (Pittsburgh, PA) will exhibit the Lumidize aluminum electroplating process, a replacement for surface preparation technologies containing heavy metals and phosphates. Lumidize is a proprietary aqueous process that plates any conductive substrate. The resultant electroplate (0.1 mil or less) forms a hard, tenacious barrier, maximizing adhesion and improving corrosion resistance. Lumidize has a particular affinity for carbon steels. Once Lumidized, those surfaces chemically bind to topcoats without phosphate or primer. Lumidize is a simple addition to electroplating lines, compatible with pulse and DC systems. Featuring low toxicity, dyeability and low cost, this made-in-USA product is compliant with the most stringent US air emissions regulations.
