What is Nedox coating?

Wear resistant coating offers corrosion protection on metals. Nedox® Basic electroless nickel is a high quality electroless nickel process worthy of the Magnaplate name, which delivers superior performance compared to other electroless nickel processes.

What is Tufram coating?

TUFRAM® is a collective name for a family of coatings in which an aluminum surface is converted in to aluminum oxide Al2O3. H2O. During this process the aluminum crystals grow out to a porous layer that remains hygroscopic for a short time and therefore has optimum adhesive properties.

What is a synergistic coating?

Synergistic coatings create harder-than-steel, permanently dry lubricated metal surfaces that are designed to resist corrosion. Magnaplate HCR® for aluminum, for example, can withstand salt spray exposure in excess of 15,000 hours—that’s 44 times the MIL-SPEC requirement of 336 hours.

Is electroless nickel plating FDA approved?

National Electroless Nickel process meets the requirements of ASTM B733 class V, Mil-C-26074 (all revisions), AMS-2404, and ISO 4527. The coatings conform to the requirements of ELV Directive 2000/53/EC, WEEE 2002/96/EC and RoHS 2002/95/EC. IMDS number 32699370. All Coatings are FDA Approved and fully RoHS Compliant.

How is electroless nickel plating done?

The process involves dipping the substrate in a water solution containing nickel salt and a phosphorus-containing reducing agent, usually a hypophosphite salt. It is the most common version of electroless nickel plating (EN plating) and is often referred by that name.

Is nickel plating food safe?

It is also hard-wearing and highly corrosion resistant, making it one of the safest and most versatile food contact materials at any temperature or application. This outstanding corrosion resistance makes nickel-containing stainless steels a material of choice in both home and professional kitchens.

What is the purpose of electroless nickel plating?

Electroless Nickel Plating is versatile and offers many advantages. It is used to keep parts protected from natural wear, abrasion and corrosion, and adds hardness to the surface for all types of applications in varying conditions. Electroless Nickel Plating is most used in the following industries: Aerospace.

What is the difference between electroplating and electroless plating?

So, what IS the difference between electro plating and electroless plating? The simple answer is that electro-plating uses electricity in the process of transferring a deposit to a substrate while electroless plating utilizes an aqueous solution and no electricity to transfer the deposit.

Is nickel in cookware toxic?

Nickel is very likely more toxic than mercury and is the main reason for concern in using stainless steel cookware. It is unknown how many nickel ions are liberated during the cooking process with stainless steel cookware. Using stainless steel cookware in which the food touches the metal is best avoided.

Is nickel in stainless steel carcinogenic?

For those who are sensitive, a single dose of 67 µg can cause a flare up or lead to systemic dermatitis. The most serious risk is to people who breathe dust containing nickel compounds while working in an industrial setting. The EPA has determined that, under these conditions, nickel is a carcinogen.

What materials can be electroless nickel plated?

An electroless nickel-coated surface is also lubricious and abrasion-resistant. Aluminum is the most common metal that benefits from electroless nickel plating, due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent machinability, and low cost….Advanced Coating Option

  • Aluminum.
  • Steel.
  • Bronze.
  • Copper.
  • Tungsten.
  • Plastics.
  • And more.

What are the advantages of electroless coating?

Improved corrosion resistance due to a more consistent thickness. The ability to plate complicated and irregular shapes. Lower operating costs due to improved coating quality. Improved mold and die release properties for stamping and drawing.

Is stainless steel cancerous?

Aluminum, cast iron, and stainless steel are great choices for cookware and cooking utensils. Although all metals may release into food, the amount is minimal, and these three options have little to no negative health effects associated.

What are the disadvantages of electroless plating?

The only disadvantage to the electroless process is that the solution needs to be monitored throughout to ensure that its concentration of metal ions is kept topped up. Since we monitor all our plating process in any case to ensure quality across the board, this hardly qualifies.

Why is nickel plate Electroless?

Electroless nickel plating is the simpler plating solution, as no electric charge or catalyst is needed. Instead, it involves a natural chemical reaction, which occurs evenly on all exposed areas of the base material. This allows increased precision and customization in coating thickness.

What is the safest cookware to use?

Best and Safest Cookware

  • Cast iron. While iron can leach into food, it’s generally accepted as being safe.
  • Enamel-coated cast iron. Made of cast iron with a glass coating, the cookware heats like iron cookware but doesn’t leach iron into food.
  • Stainless steel.
  • Glass.
  • Lead-Free Ceramic.
  • Copper.

Is cooking with stainless steel toxic?

Stainless steel is not only a top-quality and durable metal, it is also the safest option for use in your home. Stainless steel emits no toxins and does not react with ingredients. What’s more you can say goodbye to preparing your pans with oil or butter as CRISTEL’s high-end stainless steel non-stick cookware.
