YUASA Electrolytic Diaphragm For Plating

The electrolytic diaphragm controls the consumption of additives and enhances plating performance.

Newly released "Y-9207TA".
The effective width was 1.5 times compared with a conventional product.

Features

  • Being microporous, the neutral membrane involves low electric resistance and smaller movements of liquid.
  • Highly resistant to chemicals.
  • It can be handled easily because it can be kept in dry conditions before use.
  • It can be processed in many different forms such as slit, bag and frame welding.
  • Less expensive than ion exchange membranes.

Applications

  • Diaphragm for copper plating (especially effective in printed circuit boards necessitating fine controls, such as via filling and through hole)
  • Diaphragm for nickel plating
  • All applications of electric plating
