WHAT IS METAL PLATING? A LOOK AT ITS PROCESS AND BENEFITS
The plating process involves coating a substrate with a thin layer of metal, offering numerous advantages to parts manufactured from various materials, including metals. This plating technique is predominantly accomplished through two methods: electroplating, which utilizes an electric current, and through electroless plating, which is an autocatalytic chemical process. Both methods contribute to enhancing the properties and functionalities of the plated materials, making them valuable for a wide range of manufacturing applications.
Metal plating provides a multitude of benefits. Through this process, several advantages can be achieved, such as improved corrosion resistance, a visually appealing decorative finish, enhanced solderability, increased hardness, reduced friction, altered conductivity, improved paint adhesion, efficient material deposition, and increased magnetism. These attributes make metal plating a versatile and valuable technique with wide-ranging applications in various industries.
