The CAP Technologies EPT process can be used for cleaning and coating metals of any shape and size. The EPT process can clean steel to 100% with no material loss. Coatings deposited using the CAP Technologies EPT process do not form any intermetallic layers. The absence of these intermetallic layers, which are common with hot dip galvanizing, allow the rod to be drawn or formed with no flaking or dust formation. In addition, products with coating deposited using EPT:
The CAP Technologies EPT process can deposit zinc and zinc nickel at rates up to 2m/second. Coating thickness in the EPT process is controlled by adjusting the speed of processing. Our coatings are uniform and accurate because we do not depend on wipes to remove excess coating. CAP coatings are ductile and can be drawn directly up to 97% reduction in area with no intermediate step, such as patenting, without any delamination or loss of coating.
CAP Technologies can zinc and zinc nickel coat wire from 0.032” to 0.300” as well as high and low carbon rod 1006C-1092C
Nickel coatings are widely used in various applications demanding high corrosion and wear resistance. The main advantage of using EPT for Ni coatings are high rates of deposition and excellent ductility at subsequent cold metal forming steps such as wire drawing, rolling and flat wire forming. CAP Technologies can nickel coat wire from 0.008” to 0.137” as well as high and low carbon rod. CAP Technologies can also:
Silver is a widely used metal in the jewelry, electronics, and medical industries. It is the best metal for thermal and electrical conductivity, as well as being antimicrobial. Scientists have demonstrated that silver ions can latch on to sulfur-containing thiol groups in bacterial biomolecules disrupting their activity and thereby killing the microbes.
• 100% pure Silver coating can be deposited. 100% effective against E.coli.
