The most innovative process in electroless nickel has received a new level of recognition in our industry.   Click here to read the feature article in the latest edition of Products Finishing magazine which highlights a case study on the large-scale commercial use of the One-Plate® EN process at a leading plating shop. 
  
One-Plate® is the simplest electroless nickel bath ever!  The new One-Plate® EN system uses just one "Q" component for both makeup and replenishment. One-Plate® overcomes the many shortcomings of the decades-old practice of using three different components. Forget your A,B,C's.  All you need is Q.   
 
The One-Plate® 1001 system is super bright, medium phosphorous, RoHS, self pH maintaining, with a long life and low metal drag-out. 
 
Additional One-Plate® systems are in the works including high phosphorous, PTFE, diamond and other versions to complete the revolution of the EN industry.
 

The United States Copyright Office has recognized STI with a certificate of registration for our data sheet format

STI is pleased to start the new year with good news for our electroless nickel solutions customers. The United States Copyright Office has recognized STI with a certificate of registration for our new and unique data sheet format. The first of its kind in the industry, two-part data sheet format features a "Base Document" as well as a spreadsheet "Parameters Page" for the specific bath being used. The Base Document provides a wealth of information on the features and properties of the EN system, and extensive guidance on trouble shooting. The Parameters Page automatically calculates the amount of each solution required for bath make-up and replenishment when the user inputs the bath size into the specified cells. This unique format works in Metric and Imperial measures, and provides the plater with the important information needed for daily operation of a bath without all the extraneous information in a conventional data sheet. It has already proven to be a convenient tool for both end users as well as distributors of our full line of proprietary EN solutions. To see a sample of our new two-part data sheet click here.
