What is Plating Process

Plating is the process of covering a conductive surface with a metal. It has many applications and benefits, as well as plenty of plating methods. The two main ones being electroplating and electroless plating.

There are many advantages of plating, including improvement of corrosion resistance, solderability, hardening the material, reducing friction, improving paint adhesion and abrasion resistance.

Plating Process Overview

The plating process depends on the method that is being used. Electroless plating is a non-galvanic method that produces the end result by causing simultaneous reaction in an aqueous solution and requires no external electrical power. On the other hand, electroplating requires the use of an ionic metal to form a non-ionic coating on a substrate. Other types of plating use slightly different methods, but they all involve creating a metal finish on a conductive surface.
