Copper Plating

Copper electro-deposition has a variety of applications in metal finishing, primarily:

  • An undercoat for surface finishes such as Nickel Chromium on steel, aluminium, zinc base die-castings and plating grade plastics (ABS & ABS PC). 
  • As a base for oxidized or coloured finishes.
  • Production of printed circuit boards and printing cylinders in electronics.
  • Electroforming of precision components and moulds.
  • Thick deposits which are applied on steel as a stop-off coating in case of hardening processes such as carburizing and nitriding.

Copper can be plated from a variety of solutions - cyanide, acid sulphate and more recently, fluoborate-based.
