MacDermid Showcased New Evolve, Eclipse and ZinKlad At Sur/Fin



MacDermid Inc. exhibited once again at the NASF Sur/Fin Convention in Cleveland, OH on June 9-11. Their focus this year was on the OEM market and their innovation for technology that will meet tomorrow's needs. The booth incorporated a large map which highlighted MacDermid’s global OEM support infrastructure.


MacDermid was fortunate to have a Freightliner aluminum door frame that was supplied by Henrob in their booth. It displayed self-piercing rivets that are plated with our MacuGuard ALMAC (Aluminum Zinc Tin).


The remainder of the booth focused on individual product areas such as:

Evolve, their latest pretreatment system that is free from chromic acid and other substances of very high concern


Electroless Nickel - Eclipse (black EN), LMO (low metal operation) products and their Niklad ELV 835 low, medium phos process


ZinKlad, their high performance hexavalent chromium free coating that has a proven consistent quality and global network of approved applicators


Terry Clarke presented a paper on, "The Challenge to Replace Hexavalent Chromium for Plating on Plastics" which was well received by all.


MacDermid also had the opportunity to entertain customers at the Market Garden Brewery, where they received a tour of the facility while enjoying samples of their in-house brewed beer and ale.


Once everyone had a chance to taste the beer and view the brewery, the group moved to the Speakeasy Pub in McNulty's Bier Market for dinner and acoustical music provided by Cleveland's own Pete Tompkins.
