When added to your plating process, our additive forms regular and well-dispersed deposits within the metal matrix, protecting the entire surface. Availability right down to the substrate ensures protection is maintained in abrasive and high-wear environments. The product detects early-stage corrosion and responds by releasing an on-demand inhibitor.
When applied to copper, excellent microbe / virus resistance is achieved with vastly reduced maintenance.

Armadillo has demonstrated that smart release corrosion inhibitors can be included as an additive to the metal coating process, providing excellent in-service protection for multiple metal systems.
Corrosion causes unsightly tarnishing which devalues plated products. Armadillo technology keeps decorative metal shining for over five times longer, and relieves the maintenance burden experienced by the end user.
Our materials are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Armadillo technology boosts the properties of nickel and zinc coatings, creating carcinogenic free, feasible alternatives to cadmium and chrome.
We add value to copper by boosting tarnish resistance - the copper is self-sanitising and will vastly reduce infection rates when applied to common touch surfaces.
