Active Catalyst for Cu Plating by Chemical Substitution

SMASH-11 provides shiny gloss and helps to acquire even plating property in continuous plating of tire code and welding rod. SMASH-11 provides uniformity in continuous Cu plating by controlling excessive corrosion and oxidizing power.


• Improves the adhesion of plating by activating the wire surface
• Maintains even plating power by stabilizing plating solution
• Acquires excellent quality by eliciting the gloss on the surface
• Prevents aging of the plating solution by controlling the rapid increase of iron ion

[ Properties and method ]

※ Cu plated welding rod w/existing catalyst → Oxidized surface caused by declined plating adhesion and uniformity
※ Cu plated welding rod w/SMASH-11 → No oxidation, outstanding gloss by even and meticulous plating
