The Electroplating Process
Electroplating is a process that uses electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a coherent metal coating on an electrode. The term is also used for electrical oxidation of anions onto a solid substrate, as in the formation silver chloride on silver wire to make silver/silver-chloride electrodes. Electroplating is primarily used to change the surface properties of an object (e.g. abrasion and wear resistance, corrosion protection, lubricity, aesthetic qualities, etc.), but may also be used to build up thickness on undersized parts or to form objects by electroforming.

Electroplating changes the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of the workpiece. An example of a chemical change is when nickel plating improves corrosion resistance. An example of a physical change is a change in the outward appearance.
An example of a mechanical change is a change in tensile strength or surface hardness which is a required attribute in tooling industry.[9] Electroplating of acid gold on underlying copper/nickel-plated circuits reduces contact resistance as well as surface hardness. Copper plated areas of mild steel act as a mask if case hardening of such areas are not desired.Tin-plated steel is chromium plated to prevent dulling of the surface due to oxidation of tin.

All finishes are available in rack and barrel processing. Treatment facilities are available for processing ferrous components including stainless steel, copper and its alloys and aluminium alloys and they operate an in-house laboratory for physical and chemical testing. Hastings Metal Finishers are also happy to advise existing and potential customers on any surface finishing issues.

Working with individuals, corporate and financial advisors, Invest Northern Counties are primarily focused on high-return industries such as property, film and TV, and have a growing interest in ethical investment opportunities.

Invest Northern Counties
Leveraging business relationships established through decades of working in England’s North East financial industry, Invest Northern Counties launched in 2007 with an impressive roll call of high net worth investors. Their individual wealth typically ranges from £2.5 million to £20 million. They carefully screens would-be investors to ensure both their professional and personal ethos is compatible with their own. Since first opening their doors they have carefully grown clientele by more than double. To them, Invest Northern Counties have delivered 56 completed investment projects with an average return on investment of 37%.

Our typical investor has entrepreneurial experience, often having exited a business. They have a passion for bespoke investment opportunities and are aware that an element of risk often delivers the highest yields. They are savvy when it comes to tax benefits, but seek our expertise in HMRC advance assurance schemes and tax planning.

Invest Northern Counties are able to provide private equity input into the SME sector in a number of forms whether that be loan instrument, equity or convertible loan. Detailed assessment of the target business is made including use of 9 accounting ratio’s, sector analysis, profit and loss, balance sheet and cashflow extract and a detailed pitch document is circulated to the HNW/SI syndicate.

Initial interest from each member is then collated and an indicative private equity amount is then given to the investee company. Meetings with syndicate members are then made at a convenient location to both parties and often include the business premises of the target company. At the core of a successful private equity transaction is a strong relationship between syndicate and business which is based on implicit trust. A rifle approach rather than shotgun often dramatically improves conversion ratio of pitch to funding.

For further information please telephone 0191 442 2095 or visit the Invest Northern Counties – UK Investment Opportunities website and see how we can identify some high-yield investment opportunities specifically for you.

BBC Guide to Avoiding Cyber Scams

Avoiding Cyber Scams
Every week listeners email You and Yours at the BBC, telling them how they, or someone close to them, has been conned. Many of these scams are depressingly familiar, but new ones are emerging all the time. According to the Office for National Statistics, in 2015 there were an estimated 7.6 million cases of fraud and cybercrime in England and Wales alone. It means most people in the UK are now far more likely to be conned than burgled.

The BBC has put some guidance onto the web which should help people avoid these scams – Avoiding Cyber Scams.

Made-to-Measure Blinds – The Beautiful Blind Company

Made-to-Measure Blinds – The Beautiful Blind Company

Freshen Up the Home Décor with Made-to-Measure Blinds
Spring 2016 is upon us and this could be the ideal time of year for removing clutter and embracing an “out with the old, in with the new” philosophy. With the weather being neither too warm nor too cold, we hope for warmer weather, the time has come to open up the doors and windows and let in fresh air while cleaning off the dust and getting rid of items that are past their useful life.

For many homeowners, this also means rethinking the home décor. If you feel that your home or conservatory is ready for a facelift, keep in mind that high-quality, made-to-measure blinds will do just as much as new furniture or decorations to improve the look of your home and conservatory.

You might begin by emboldening the look of the conservatory with a set of brightly coloured conservatory blinds that will look spectacular against the white trim. Pastel colours in particular provide a soft look in all seasons and allow for light to pass through without causing the room to feel too warm in the summer months. When considering your options, be sure that your final decision is a good fit for your conservatory’s existing décor.

If your conservatory has not yet been completed and you haven’t already decided on the colour or style of furnishings, then consider all of these at once so that your new conservatory blinds and furnishings will both contribute to the desired look and feel of the conservatory.

Traditionally used externally as a window covering in hot climates, plantation shutters have come into fashion as an interior window covering because of their appealing combination of looks and practicality. Plantation shutters add texture and depth to any room and set off the windows even better than standard window treatments.

They are also highly functional and improve energy efficiency by blocking drafts in winter and heat in the summer, both physically and by providing shade. In any season, they also provide privacy without blocking the view from within the home. Stained wood shutters look equally well against white or stained trim, and any natural colour for the walls will complete a traditional colour scheme. For more modern tastes, consider white plantation shutters, or shutters with a light stain, as a complement to light-coloured walls and a few well-chosen accent pieces.

Shutters may be full-length, café-style (which leave the top half of the window uncovered, allowing light to come in while the shutters are closed for privacy) or tier-on-tier, covering the upper and lower halves of the window so that they can be opened and closed individually for the desired amount of light and privacy. Shutters are also just as easy to clean as traditional blinds: one quick wipe with a cloth or brush with a feather duster and you’re done!

Wood shutters can also be measured to fit doors opening up onto the front lawn or garden, offering many of the same benefits as plantation shutters for windows. Likewise, conservatory blinds should always be made-to-measure to ensure the perfect fit for each section of the conservatory. For a fresh, new look to the home or conservatory that will delight the family and visitors alike, custom shutters and conservatory blinds may be exactly what you need.

The Beautiful Blind Company
Consider looking for a company like The Beautiful Blind Company who specialise in conservatory roof blinds, conservatory blinds, plantation shutters and all other types of made to measure blinds. They can supply and fit all types of blinds for your home and office, with each blind made to your exact requirements.
