Enthone recently hosted a comprehensive technology seminar on high performance electroplating systems for the sanitary and hardware industry, in partnership with its distributor, North Rasayan, in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. More than 50 OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers participated.
Mr. Gordon Tindle, vice president - Performance Coatings, Enthone Asia, and Mr. Jonathan Timms, marketing director – Performance Coatings, Enthone Asia, chaired the seminar. “We were extremely gratified to meet so many new participants from the industry," he said. "The production of sanitary and hardware components in India is increasing in volume and quality very rapidly, and Enthone is very happy to be a part of this.”
Specifically, pretreatment and specially engineered plating processes for bath fittings and hardware were detailed during the full-day seminar. Mr. Timms addressed how ENTHONE® integrated technologies solutions, including ELPELYT® GS-7 bright nickel specially engineered for plating on metal substrates, TRILYTE® Dusk dark trivalent chromium and the Kavitech cleaning system deliver optimum performance that meets current and emerging industry requirements.
