What Objects can be Electroplated?
Electroplating continues to be one of the best ways to coat your products in this day and age. It is fast, efficient, and very effective! Electroplating puts a metal coat on your products using electricity! A current gets passed through a solution by dipping two terminals into it that are electrically charged. This
then breaks up the solution and the atoms of the metal you are electroplating get deposited in a thin layer on the product.
Electroplating works with a wide variety of objects and you can electroplate a decent bit of different metals on your products too. Some of the best metals to use to electroplate are gold, silver, copper, tin, platinum, nickel, chromium, cadmium, palladium, brass, and of course, zinc. Zinc is our favorite metal to electroplate at Professional Plating because it has so many cool properties! It is corrosion-resistant, durable, and safe for human contact! As a bonus, it is also one of the cheaper metals so this will help your wallet a lot and make your product look amazing!
There are a ton of objects you can electroplate! Some of the most common are tools (medical and mechanical), strong plastics, outdoor equipment (so it rusts much slower), kitchen equipment (so it shines more), and car parts! Car parts are one of the most popular options as this keeps the part from rusting and really makes your car stand out, but all of these are great options when it comes to electroplating!
Here at Professional Plating, we care about your product! The best way to make that product last a long time is to get it electroplated. Your product will last longer, look better, and come with more durability and resistance. You can’t go wrong with electroplating!
