Base Metal Electrolytes

Base metal electrolytes from Umicore - successful worldwide for decades

Non-precious metal electrolytes are an important part of our product range: bronze electrolytes under the brand name MIRALLOY® have been established in the past 30 years worldwide for the deposition of white, gold and red bronze layers. The copper-tin or copper-tin-zinc electrolytes can be used in rack or barrel operation.

Our classic product MIRALLOY® is as a nickel- and lead-free process used worldwide among others in the clothing industry: thus billions of zippers and buttons are coated year after year. On high-frequency connectors, in cars and on hydraulics the easily solderable and non-magnetic surfaces are valued, too. 

Also, take a look at our nickel-phosphorus alloy. Our product NIPHOS® is the perfect chemical nickel alternative.

By the way: If you reduce the thickness of your hard chrome layers and, moreover, want to increase corrosion protection, add a first layer of NIPHOS®. It protects perfectly together with the overlying hard chrome final finish.
