CONCLUSIONS As outlined above the electrolytic deposition of a thin and environmentally safe catalytic organic film on wrought or cast aluminum or its alloys will serve as a alternative to the conventional "zincate"and/or "stannate" processing to prepare aluminum and its alloys for plating. The new process is accomplished with far less difficulty. ABOUT THE AUTHOR John W. Bibber is the laboratory and research director at Sanchem, Inc.
