One corporation was using molten/tin solder in their production of steel tubing but once cooled the solder was adhering tenaciously to clamps, trays and racks. The cleaning of fixtures was almost impossible. In addition, the working life of wipers used in solder baths is very short, so both problems led to interruption of production, excessive downtime and expensive replacement of wipers.
General Magnaplate utilized its broad experience and in conjunction with the Theoretical Research Institute came up with MAGNAPLATE SNS. This new coating prevented the wetting of any metal by lead solder, silver solder or brazing metal. It also adds an ultra-hard surface to the metal, is chemically inert, and permits an application of thickness as small as 0.001".
