Electroplating

Electroplating

Electroplating is a process that uses an electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a thin coherent metal coating on an electrode.

Electroplating is primarily used to change the surface properties of an object (such as abrasion and wear resistance, Corrosion protection, lubricity, aesthetic qualities), but may also be used to build up thickness on undersized parts or to form objects by electroforming.

General Metal Finishing

Decorative Coatings metal finishing

Metal finishing practice in decorative electroplating is work directed towards attaining better durability of decoratively plated articles. Decorative electroplating is the process used to add a new metal finish on top of metal and plastic parts.

Primary reasons of decorative plating are to enhance the quality of the parts used internally or externally. A key benefit of electroplating process is that it offers increased lifespan and enhance the functionality of the product, while also meeting end-user’s aesthetic requirements.

Corrosion Resistant Coatings
Corrosion resistant coatings protect metal components against corrosive degradation due to humidity, salty environment, oxidation, or exposure to a variety of environments. Corrosion resistant coatings provides protection to metal surfaces and acts as a barrier to inhibit the contact between corrosive material and base metal. Coatings with anti-corrosive properties enhance metal components have the longest possible lifespan. Corrosion resistant coatings are mainly metal based sacrificial coatings and organic polymers-based barrier coatings.
Plating on Plastics
Reflectivity and aesthetics are main benefit of plating on plastic substrate. A coating of a metals such as chrome, gold, silver and brass significantly brighten the appearance of a plain plastic surface and adds touch of color. It can enhance the substrate’s reflectivity to next level which can be used for many functional applications too and strength to the plastic is also advantageous.

Functional coatings

Functional Coating is used for functional surfaces of engineering parts to improve their wear resistance, mechanical durability, electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance. With regard to the industrial use of functional coating for technical purposes, the most widely utilized qualities of coatings are:

Precious Metal Plating

Precious metal coating has been used for decades because of the aesthetic looks and corrosion protection.

The corrosion protection properties of precious metal coatings relate to least reactivity in the electrochemical series.

Precious Metals have widespread applications in the interior decoration, fit outs, aerospace, automotive, electronics industries.

These metals are expensive and rare but are invaluable because of their intrinsic properties and high positive electrode potentials which mean they are relatively inert to most aggressive environments.

Electroplating

Electroplating is a process that uses an electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a thin coherent metal coating on an electrode.

Electroplating is primarily used to change the surface properties of an object (such as abrasion and wear resistance, Corrosion protection, lubricity, aesthetic qualities), but may also be used to build up thickness on undersized parts or to form objects by electroforming.

Electroplating, often referred to as electro-deposition, is a chemical process that lays its utmost sense of essentiality in the industrial activities where the process of finishing the metals is required. It is the procedure of overlaying and depositing one metal type over the other in order to ensure the enhancement of decors of the metals, in general. Electroplating has a variety of uses; it is used as a preventive measure to safeguard metals from corrosion, decorating pieces of metals, etc.

We are one of the leading Electroplating Chemical Suppliers in UAE.  Since then, we have been supplying chemicals for the past 20 years in providing technical services to the plating industries. We provide industrial electroplating chemicals for general metal plating, functional metal plating, precious metals plating, and corrosion resistants.
