Elite Finishing LLC is Excited to Announce Their Decorative Duplex Nickel/Chrome Plating Process That Achieves 72 Hour CASS Testing and Increases Yields by More Than 20%
Elite Finishing LLC uses electroless nickel to achieve LEVEL 10 approvals for over 72 hour CASS test approval on duplex nickel/chrome plated aluminum parts. This exceeds Harley-Davidson’s requirements by 327%. These parts went on to go to 144 hrs before the first signs of failure, a level 9 rating in protection and appearance. Not only does this finish pass this aggressive corrosion test in all critical areas, it also passed in areas ASTM specification eliminates from testing due to the difficulty of plating into recessed areas that a ¾” diameter ball can not touch.
These results are included in a report from Scientific Control Labs, one of the nation’s top testing facilities, stating that Elite Finishing passed the aggressive CASS testing procedure until the 144 hour checkpoint. This is amazing considering that HD only requires a 22 hour test to approve parts.
Using this method Elite took a job that another supplier was running at 70% yields, due to casting issues, up to 92% yields. This saved their customer over $750,000 a year annually, allowed them to get off overtime because they needed fewer parts to meet their order requirements, allowed them to bring the outsourced processes back in-house since they now had excess capacity and they went out and filled this excess capacity with new work.
