E-Brite Ultra CU Alkaline Non-Cyanide Copper Replaces Copper Pyrophosphate Bath. Eric Olander, President of EPi and John Gilbert, Sales Representative of Gilbert & Jones Install the E-Brite Ultra CU Copper Plating Process in the Boston Area

Posted by on

Eric Olander, President of EPi and John Gilbert, Sales Representative of Gilbert & Jones install a new E-Brite Ultra CU bath (alkaline non-cyanide copper) to replace a copper pyrophosphate with excellent success.

One advantage is the E-Brite Ultra CU alkaline non-cyanide copper bath is it does not generate the orthophosphate like the pyrophosphate bath. The E-Brite Ultra CU bath also plates directly to electro-less nickel (EN), while the pyrophosphate copper bath had to use a cyanide copper process. Another expected benefit is the bath stability day after day, as it has a larger operating window than the pyrophosphate bath. The customer is also using cyanide copper strike prior to plating zinc die-cast and zincated aluminum parts and then the pyro copper. We can eliminate the cyanide copper process as well.

The E-Brite Ultra CU is the same process that we used plating directly to the back of an iPod. Click on E-Brite Ultra Cu to watch the video.
