DuPont to Introduce Novel Metallization and Finishing Solutions at SUR/FIN Show 2022

Advanced process solutions deliver performance, cost and sustainability advantages in traditional and emerging applications

Wilmington, Del., May 17, 2022 – DuPont (NYSE:DD) will showcase its novel process solutions for plastic metallization and component finishing at SUR/FIN 2022, a conference and trade show dedicated specifically to the surface finishing technology industry. The show will be held from June 7-9, 2022, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, in Rosemont, IL. The DuPont Interconnect Solutions (ICS) business, part of DuPont Electronics & Industrial, will exhibit at Booth #128.

The major global markets that utilize plastic metallization and component finishing processes are in a period of significant change. Mature process technology is being replaced with innovative solutions that offer improved processing performance while eliminating the use of toxic substances. DuPont ICS has responded to these dynamics and will showcase several novel products during SUR/FIN 2022, designed to satisfy high performance demands, while providing operational, cost and environmental advantages. These include:

·       Ecoposit™ CF-800—a chrome-free etch, REACH-compliant pretreatment for ABS and ABS-PC plastic metallization.

·       Ecoposit™ 95HT—a high throw, low stress acid copper designed for optimum performance with chrome-free pretreatment.

·       Ecoposit™ XF-1000—a formaldehyde-free, uniquely stable electroless copper, enabling replacement of electroless nickel and strike, thereby eliminating phosphates, borates and ammonia.

·       Nikal™ BF-100—a high-performance boric acid-free nickel electrolyte that improves corrosion resistance, with high throw, higher CD range and reduced deposit stress.

·       Silveron™ GT-210—a cyanide-free silver electrolyte producing deposits exhibiting very low friction and wear characteristics.

·       Solderon™ ST-400—a high-speed matte tin, providing 40% higher plating speed, simplified packaging and analysis, with superior electrolyte stability and deposit performance.

·       Teleposit™ 8000—designed to metallize filled and unfilled LCP substrates, enabling consistent metal coverage and adhesion without the use of abrasive mechanical techniques. 

In addition to showcasing these products at SUR/FIN 2022, DuPont scientist Feng Liu will offer two presentations as part of the show’s technical conference. The first paper, High Throw High Leveling, Low Stress Acid Copper Electroplating Process will be offered on Tuesday, June 7th at 2:30 PM. The second presentation, Liquid Crystal Polymer Metallization, will be offered on Wednesday, June 8th at 11 am. Feng is a lead scientist with DuPont Electronics & Industrial and has focused his efforts on the electroless metallization of printed circuit boards and functional plastics.
