Need plating book recommendations, please

Need plating book recommendations, please

(OP)
I am coming to electroplating from the material science side and trying to learn the practical.  

I have Ammen's Electroplater's Handbook and several years of Metal Finishing.  Anything anyone else cares to recommned would be appreciated.   

I am looking for a copy of:

Trouble in Your Tank Handbook for Solvin 3ed
by Lawrence J Durney

It is our of print and Hanser Gardner didn't have anything else to recommend.  

Thank you,
Tom Walz

RE: Need plating book recommendations, please

Go to http://www.finishing.com/index.html
for lists of books (with mini-reviews by Ted Mooney), with links to amazon.com. Modern Electroplating (4th edn.), Electroplating Engineering(4th edn.), and ASM Handbook Vol. 5 Surface Engineering are all tops but pricey.

Those in the business can get a free subscription to Products Finishing, which includes an annual Directory and Technology Guide similar to the MF Guidebook. In any event, you can use the online site.
http://www.pfonline.com/

Probably, you are already familiar with Metal Finishing's online sites, e.g.,
http://www.metalfinishing.com/WZ/MetalFinishing/guidebooks/show/

Electroplating, Anodizing & Metal Treatment Handbook is inexpensive ($13.46 + $3 airmail), rather like an oversized Metal Finishing Guidebook, from http://www.oscarindia.com/

The Canning Handbook Surface Finishing Technology is out of print, but can often be found used. Look for the final, 24th edn. at http://www.amazon.co.uk/ or http://www.bookfinder.com/

MIL and Federal standards are free downloads at http://assist2.daps.dla.mil/quicksearch/

Finally, for standard methods of surface preparation, electroplating (& other coating methods) and testing of coatings, I recommend ASTM's Volume 02.05 Metallic and Inorganic Coatings,....

Thank you

Anything you would recommend over the others?

RE: Need plating book recommendations, please

I think you can obtain copies of Durney's book from AESF using the following link:

https://www.aesf.org/bookstore/home2.cfm?ProductID=327&do=detail

Another source of reference books (including out-of-print) that is frequently recommended by Art Kushner (Plating Clinic columnist & expert for Products Finishing magazine/website) is Metal Finishing Publications.  Their phone number is 914.333.2578.

Thank you for the help.

I have ordered it from AESF.

Actually this all got started because of Kushner's column.  He recommended the book and Hanser Gardner and so on.  I have a gret deal of respect for him and I figured if he reommended it it was worth going to to some trouble to find.

RE: Need plating book recommendations, please

Maybe the best book to start with is 'Electroplating Course Manual -- Basic Practical Electroplating', highly recommended by Ted Mooney; info at www.finishing.com  ;
I cannot vouch for its current availability, but it is much less expensive than course materials at the AESF website.

Electroplating Engineering(4th edn.) is the best book for building or remodelling a plant.

Glenn Mallory's book Electroless Plating is the best on that subject.

There is a list of 1000+ Electrochemistry books published since 1950 at http://electrochem.cwru.edu/estir/books.htm
 
A number of plating, corosion, metallizing plastics, etc. books sponsored by The Electrochemical Society (helps to be a member) are listed at
http://208.5.159.10/publications/monographs/monographs.htm
For a scientific understanding of plating, the best book is Fundamentals of Electrochemical Deposition, by M. Paunovic and M. Schlesinger (1998); 301 pages, ISBN O-471-16820-3.

ASM Int. has some sale-priced books (same prices for non-members on these) at http://www.asminternational.org/Template.cfm?Section=ClearanceProducts&Template=Ecommerce/Category.cfm&Category=12&StartNum=1
For example,
The Surface Treatment and Finishing of Aluminum and Its Alloys, 5th Edition (2 volumes) $199.

Volumetric Analysis of Metal Finishing Solutions $25.

Handbook of Effluent Treatment and Recycling for the Metal Finishing Industry, 2nd Edition, $49.
