Birchwood Casey’s Tru Temp low-temperature black oxide process protects tooling and fixtures used in all types of manufacturing. In storage, shipment, and start-up, the finish serves as a protective barrier against corrosion and provides break-in lubricity and anti-galling protection. It complies with MIL-DTL-13924, Class 1 and withstands 100-300 h of salt spray. The process is suited for components manufactured to tight tolerances, yet it does not affect function. The finish serves as a direct replacement for zinc phosphate finishes, without the hazardous zinc content. Total process time is 25 min, and operating cost is 2 to 3 cents per pound of finished work. The process operates at 200°F, eliminating the severe splattering and boilover hazards often experienced with conventional hot (290°F) black oxide finishing. Also, its mild solutions prevent red coatings and white salt leaching that often plague ordinary black oxide finishes.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
