T.E.A.+TERNARY ECO ALLOY PLUS®.

INNOVATIVE ECO-COMPATIBLE INTERMETALLIC ALLOY PLATING

TEA® PLUS plating is based on an electro-deposited intermetallic alloy. It is a valid alternative to the classic Nickel + Chrome plating. In fact, electroless Nickel plating is an ideal solution for the food and beverage sector (professional coffee machines and vending machines), as well as for plumbing and fashion accessory applications.

The TEA® PLUS process makes it possible to obtain extremely passive semi-gloss deposits with very high levels of resistance to wear and no micro-cracks.
