Mitsuya received a request from a Swiss manufacturer for Rhodium (Rh) and Palladium (Pd) plating / surface finishing for a certain medical device.

Rhodium (Rh) and Palladium (Pd) plating

The request was to provide a plating / surface finish that would not cause problems even if it came into continuous contact with human skin under harsh conditions, such as perspiration. The request also required that the plating composition be free of nickel, an allergenic substance so that it would biocompatible.
Using our technology, we were able to determine a plating configuration for stainless steel that met the requirements of the artificial perspiration test, and succeeded in creating an optimal plating configuration. We are proud of this achievement, as the plating used in this equipment will help many, many millions of people around the world.
If you have any questions about plating or surface treatment, including medical devices, please contact us. Our sales representatives and engineers are available in English and Japanese. We may also be able to help you in other languages by using our translator.
