Berlin, Oktober 2017: Atotech is pleased to be given the TL 194 approval by Audi for both acid and alkaline zinc.

Atotech’s OEM team received the official confirmation by the Audi AG that their alkaline corrosion resistant coating processes “Unizinc® NCZ 420 + EcoTri® HC2 + Sealer 300 W” and “Unizinc® NCZ 420 + EcoTri® HC2 + Sealer 300 WL7” have been approved for use by the Ingolstadt-based automotive manufacturer. Both processes offer high corrosion protection (720 h) for connecting components in contact with magnesium – as requested by Audi.

Peter Lawin, Global OEM & Key Account Manager at Atotech, states: “We are very proud to receive the extended approval by Audi. Magnesium will come to play an increasing role in the development of automobiles of tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.” Peter Lawin continues, “Since it is even remarkably lighter than aluminum, magnesium further contributes to lighter body works leading to lower fuel consumption.”

With the latest addition, Atotech further extends its comprehensive list of approvals from automotive manufacturers.
