An example of a process developed by MECAPROTEC industries, from the laboratory phase to industrialisation, is the the Zinc-Nickel process, which is of high value in the aeronautical industry due to the need to replace the existing cadmium-based process.

Thanks to the studies launched by MECAPROTEC industries in partnership with its state scientific contacts, the development of the zinc-nickel co-deposition process achieved its first qualifications in the aeronautical field in Europe. Having its own electrolyte formulation improves a company’s control of operating parameters and bath ageing, and enables it to guarantee its customers a constant level of treatment quality over several decades. Today, the zinc-nickel process is integrated in the quality system and the orders are fulfilled by qualified operators. MECAPROTEC industries is therefore the first surface treatment company capable of providing its aeronautical customers with a treatment that has been tried and tested in the automotive industry and which fully complies with aeronautical requirements.

The teams at MECAPROTEC Industries are currently working on other innovative replacement processes, such as fine sulphuric acid anodising, chemical conversion, etc.
