. “There hasn’t been significant new anodizing technology for many years, and we are receiving great interest in MICRALOX® and how it can be used.”

As the first North American licensee of MICRALOX®, Duralectra-CHN will demonstrate the excellent chemical stability and corrosion resistance of this revolutionary anodic coating at the upcoming EASTEC 2011 tradeshow in West Springfield, MA..

“Many end users have been dissatisfied by how anodizing performs in certain applications, especially when their articles have to be cleaned with strong detergents or subjected to harsh environments. This has limited to some degree where anodic coatings can be used, in spite of their overall excellent properties. Our customers are really excited about how this new type of RoHS-compliant decorative and protective coating completely solves some fundamental problems,” stated David DiBiasio, head of sales and marketing at Duralectra-CHN. “There hasn’t been significant new anodizing technology for many years, and we are receiving great interest in MICRALOX® and how it can be used.”

Duralectra-CHN will be attending the show, and will be located in Building 5 in Booth 5338 at the EASTEC 2011 show. Duralectra-CHN’s goal is to showcase how MICRALOX® can be adopted by customers throughout New England and beyond to solve basic quality and performance issues to allow anodic coatings to be confidently extended into new applications.
