RBP Chemical Technology Inc. (RBP Chemical) has introduced three new waste treatment products for electronics and metal finishing. The three products are RBP MetalTreat 530, RBP MetalTreat 4007 and RBP MetalTreat 957. The RBP MetalTreat 530 precipitates metals out of solution; RBP MetalTreat 4007 coagulates the metal precipitate formed by MetalTreat 530 and RBP MetalTreat 957 flocculates the coagulated metal waste formed by MetalTreat 4007.
The final result of using the three RBP MetalTreat products is a dense, solid waste cake which can be easily removed from a bath.
RBP Chemical president Mark Kannenberg said, The RBP MetalTreat system is an innovative, complete chemical system for use by printed circuit manufacturers and metal finishing operations. The entire line of chemicals is non-DOT regulated and non-hazardous. MetalTreat 530, the precipitant, is entirely free of sodium dimethyldithiocarbamate (DTC) and thus prevents aquatic toxicity. It is deodorized and can be used with Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) metering.
MetalTreat 4007, the coagulant, is equally effective in printed circuit board and metal finishing applications. MetalTreat 957, the flocculant, is packaged as an easy-to-use suspension, rather than a hard-to-handle solid. The entire RBP MetalTreat System offers a simple, effective solution to one of the more troublesome problems in printed circuit board production and metal finishing.
