Chemical Symbol: Cu Zn
Purity: the purity of brass plates is > 99.90%.
Product Description: the two main alloys used in electroplating for brass plating are 63/37 and 70/30. Other alloys are possible, for example 80/20.
Uses: Brass plates anodes are used for brass deposition for decorative or functional applications. Brass anodes are placed in anode bags. The formulation of the laitonnage baths is based on sodium cyanide, copper cyanide, zinc cyanide and caustic soda. The chosen brass quality will depend on the desired color of the deposit.
Brass anodes are used extensively in decorative applications, from light fixture plating to manufactured cabinet hardware. Plastic parts finished with decorative chrome plating also utilize phos-copper anodes in the plating process.S
