Join us and meet our experts at SUR/FIN to discuss the latest market requirements and to get more information about our state-of-the-art technologies.

This year our SUR/FIN booth features four distinct industry areas each highlighting our products and competence in a specific sector: automotive, motorsports, heavy equipment and oil & gas.
There are a selection of sector related parts which have been finished with Atotech’s electroless nickel and BluCr® technologies. Regarding our zinc & zinc alloy plating and zinc flake product lines, we are showcasing processes that increase production efficiency and are of interest for many applicators and OEM’s worldwide.

Special highlights are:

  • Zinni® 220: an acid zinc nickel that provides comparable thickness distribution to alkaline zinc nickel but reduces the plating time by 33%.
  • Zintek® ONE HP: a one-coat zinc flake coating that has 50% less steps than conventional zinc flake finishes.

Our experts will also speak on a broad range of topics at the following sessions. We’ll be happy to see you there!
