Example of uses for Metal Plating:

Electro-metal plating is a way of adding a metal finish used for various reasons, it could be as a decorative finish or to prevent corrosion to increase longevity and durability. Other reasons include reducing friction, increased reflectivity or increasing the conductivity of electricity. Electroplating can be applied to plastics as well as metals to get the finish you require. Plastic metal coated finishes have become more prominent over the last few decades.

What is Electroplating?

Electroplating bath

Electroplating is the process of applying a metal coating to a piece of metal or another conductive item by immersing it in an electrolytic bath.  The bath contains a solution of salts including the metal that is to be coated. This is an electro-decomposition process.

An anode (+ve electrode) and a cathode (-ve electrode) are introduced into the solution and a direct current (DC) is passed through the solution. The cathode is the item that is to be metal plated. The current allows the transfer of metal ions onto the cathode surface forming a metal coating on the item. The coating becomes part of the original item.

If you want more information about the process involved, please get in touch.
