Copper plating is an important processo for those delicate substrates that could be subject to attacks in subsequent steps, or for substrates on which the electrodeposition of other metals would be impossible.

In fact, copper plating hardly ends in itself, but is followed by other processes, such as nickel plating

If copper is deposited on iron, the protection is cathodic, most of all if the particular is nickel plated and chromed, so it is essential that the deposit is compact and thick.

Copper can be deposited both by alkaline or acidic solution, in the first case we talk about cuprous solution while in the second we talk about cupric solutions, each one with his own features and uses


Nickel plating is one of the most common steps to obtain a deposit both decorative and protective, in fact it has a good resistance to corrosion and abrasion, due to the hardness of the deposit. 

There are many solutions in order to meet different needs and applications, in fact nickel plating can be: glossy, semi-gloss, matte, black, chemical, etcand each type of solution has a series of products suitable for different purposes to eliminate defects or proble

The electrochemical chromium deposition is widely used both as a decorative chromium plating and functional chromium plating. For functional chrome-plating, refer to the dedicated page in ANTI-CORROSION AND FUNCTIONAL. For the chromium plating for decorative purposes, this section shows the possible treatments available. The chrome coating is used for its characteristics of rust resistance, gloss and corrosion resistance as well as abrasion resistance, it maintains for a long time the typical bluish-white color with a high reflecting power. The thicknesses are very low and the application is indeed for a very short time.
