Alfa Chemistry’s Post-treatment Chemicals: Ensuring Superior Electroplating Results

Feb. 22, 2024

A raw metal is likely to corrode due to environmental conditions, and electroplating is usually used as a technique to protect it. Known as a praiseworthy supplier of chemicals and services, Alfa Chemistry is leading the way in revolutionizing the world of electroplating with its range of high-quality post-treatment chemicals.

In addition to corrosion resistance, electroplating has many other benefits such as improved aesthetics and durability. Today, electroplating is widely used in industries such as automotive, aerospace and electronics. To ensure durable and visually appealing electroplating results, post-treatment is equally important. Alfa Chemistry recognizes the importance of this stage and offers a wide range of chemicals specifically formulated for post-treatment applications.

"While the electroplating process itself is critical, our post-treatment chemicals also play a vital role in enhancing the quality and longevity of electroplated surfaces," commented Alfa Chemistry's Marketing Director. "In addition, our ability to tailor solutions to specific needs further solidifies our position as a trusted supplier to the electroplating industry."

Major types of post-treatment chemicals offered by Alfa Chemistry:

  • Electrolysis Protection Powder
  • Trivalent Chrome Blue Passivate
  • High Corrosive-resistant Sealer
  • Stripping Agent
  • Anti-tarnishing Dehydrating Agent

Alfa Chemistry also offers other chemical compounds used for post-treatment cleaning processes, including: Wotto3-V, NM-HB, Metal Back R-3000, Metal Back PC, Metal Back NC, Metal Back, GN cleaner 87, Electrolytic Rack Stripper, Dehydrating agent, Aurum Stripper-710H.

Passivation solution is one of the key post-treatment chemicals. Passivation is a process that forms a protective layer on the metal surface, preventing corrosion and increasing its resistance to various environmental factors. 

After the plating process, surfaces often require thorough cleaning to remove any residual contaminants or impurities. Failure to do so can result in poor adhesion and quality. Cleaning compounds are also important in this regard. 

Alfa Chemistry's scientific team is available to assist in the selection of the appropriate post-treatment chemical or to troubleshoot any problems.

It should be noted that Alfa Chemistry ensures the strictest quality control measures throughout the production process. Each batch of post-treatment chemicals undergoes rigorous testing to guarantee consistent quality and performance. This commitment to excellence has earned Alfa Chemistry a reputation for delivering reliable and superior products.


Standing at the forefront of innovation, Alfa Chemistry never ceases its efforts to develop new technologies and implement innovations for better products and services for both academia and industry. To meet the evolving needs, its product and service portfolio has been constantly diversified. Currently, Alfa Chemistry is also dedicated to helping developers solve the challenges of electroplating in various applications with its electroplating chemicals and services.
