Corrosion, or the deterioration of a metal surface through oxidation, has always been one of the most harmful and expensive technical challenges within the finishing industry.

With the increased need for "zero rejects" and improved quality by manufacturers and consumers, there has been a corresponding greater demand for the specification of salt spray tests.

The introduction of the pulse electroplating method at the beginning of the 21st century and its promising applicability to produce coatings with modified properties have led to its popularity in both scientific and industrial communities.

In this work, a method based on UV–VIS spectrophotometry using the molybdenum blue reaction is described to monitor hypophosphite and phosphite levels in nickel electroless baths. 

Take a few short steps at Hohman Plating, and you will find the remnants of a 106-year-old finishing operation that is transforming into one of the world's newest and most modern facilities.
