Non-Mist L from Uyemura International Corp. is an EPA-compliant antimist that prevents vapor escape and minimizes evaporative losses from chrome (Cr3 and CR5) plating baths. The additive forms a thin, strong foam blanket that reduces surface tension, preventing the migration of dangerous mists that can harm workers, equipment and ventilation systems. It also helps conserve costly solutions by minimizing evaporative losses and drag-out. Chromic acid concentrations are kept low, and waste treatment costs are minimized.
According to the company, the product is highly effective in small amounts, and there is no negative effect on plating results. The product does not contain perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) or fluorinated surfactants.
