Berlin, October 4, 2023 – Atotech, a brand of MKS Instruments, is pleased to announce its participation in this year’s IFE (International Fastener Expo), which takes place in Las Vegas, USA, from October 9 to 11, 2023.
The International Fastener Expo is North America’s most extensive business-to-business trade show for all fastener types, machinery and tooling, and other industrial products. IFE caters to every level of the supply chain- and offers beside the traditional exhibition area a comprehensive conference program and many workshops hosted by where fastener association and participants meet and exchange.
The Atotech product line for fastener and fixings components comprises a vast array of electroplating technologies including zinc, zinc nickel, zinc iron electrolytes as well as passivates, and sealers. Complementing our electrolytic surface finishing technologies, we offer a broad range of zinc flake coating systems. Our corrosion protection processes ensure highest corrosion resistance and consistent coefficient of friction and include UV and chemical resistance, meeting the most demanding requirements of the automotive, construction, agriculture and motorsports industries and other applications. This year show highlights include:
Zinc flake coating solutions:
Zintek® ONE HP – One-layer zinc flake system providing superior corrosion protection
Techseal® Brilliant Silver – Organic silver top coat with a very attractive and shiny appearance
Techseal® Glossy Black SL – Attractive uniform matte-black appearance with increased white corrosion resistance
Techdip® Black SL HC2 – Organic black top coat with excellent coverage on silver and black base coats providing an appealing, uniform black appearance
Electrolytic zinc and zinc nickel processes:
Zylite® family – High-performance acid zinc electrolytes providing high-gloss coatings with superior covering properties and a decorative chromium-like appearance
Zinni® 220 – Acid zinc nickel electrolyte that provides thickness distribution and nickel incorporation similar to alkaline zinc nickel.
EcoTri® NC – Cr(III)-based, cobalt-free, environmentally sound passivate offering high corrosion protection
Join us at booth 1937 to discuss the latest technology, industrial challenges, and solutions.
On October 11, 2023, at 1:30 p.m., Andrew Pfeifer will present “Trends in Fastener Finishings.” His presentation will explore the use of different fastener finishes in different applications. Hybrid systems that combine electroplating and dip-spin coatings will also be discussed to meet higher performance standards.
