Health & safety improvements
through cutting edge technology


We have now converted all our plating tanks to utilise Anker Dyne 30 surfactant, a foam free and PFOs free mist suppressant chemical which actively changes the density of chrome plating solutions. The effect of this is to reduce the size and diameter of the bubbles created during the electroplating process. Additionally beneficial is the reduction of the energy levels of the bubbles such that negligible emissions occur at the surface of the plating tank. Bubbles simply disperse.

At John Stokes Ltd we are committed to creating the safest production environment we can through the adoption of the latest low impact and low exposure technologies available to us.
