Abstract:

CHROMIC ACID IS USED FOR ETCHING PLASTICS FOR ELECTROPLATINGAND ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) SHIELDING. MORE THAN A MILLION POUNDS OF CHROMIC ACID IS USED EVERY YEAR IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR ETCHING PLASTICS. HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM IS HIGHLY TOXIC. REQUIRES EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT FOR ITS RECOVERY FROM THE WASTEWATER AND THE SLUDGE REQUIRES PR PROPER DISPOSAL. PLASTIC PLATERS ARE SEEKING A LESS HAZARDOUS AND LESS EXPENSIVE SUBSTITUTE FOR CHROMIC ACID. A NUMBER OF ETCHING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN PROPOSED IN THE LITERATURE BUT NONE OF THEM ARE BEING USED BECAUSE OF THEIR TOXICITY, FLAMMABILITY, AND HIGH COST. A NEW SYSTEM IS P PROPOSED FOR ETCHING OF PLASTIC FOR PLATING. THE SYSTEM IS THE LEAST TOXIC POSSIBLE AND LESS EXPENSIVE THAN OTHERS.
