This type of coating is typically 5um to 12um thick, gives a metal object an improved appearance and protects it from rust, corrosion, and wear. Many kinds of objects require electroplating including automotive parts, aerospace parts, and parts for general industries. If you require electroplating services, it is important to hire a respected plating company, like DeKalb Metal Finishing, that has been in business for many years. We use plating techniques that are environmentally friendly, such as ROHS-compliant alkaline electroplating and use only trivalent passivates.

How Does Electroplating Work?

A plating company uses an electrical current to coat an object that is conductive with a thin layer of any of the following materials: zinc nickel, zinc-iron, or zinc. This type of plating can give an object a characteristic it would not otherwise possess (i.e. improved corrosion resistance, protection against galvanic corrosion, or bondability).
