What is Metal Plating

commentaires · 96 Vues

Metal plating is an important surface treatment method for die castings.

What is the definition of plating?
Plating is a surface finishing technique that involves depositing a thin layer of metal on a substrate by electroplating metal ions. The metal plating process can be used to decorate objects, change their appearance, and improve properties such as corrosion resistance, hardness, wear resistance, paint adhesion, conductivity, radiation shielding, and friction, among others. Electroplating, vapor deposition under vacuum, sputter deposition, and other plating techniques are available. Junying offers electroplating as a popular surface finish option. An ionic metal is supplied with electrons to form a non-ionic coating on a substrate in the electroplating process. The system typically consists of a chemical solution with the ionic form of metal, as an anode that often consists of the metal being plated and an insoluble anode that may be carbon, steel, leads, or others, and a cathode where electrons are supplied to produce a film of non-ionic metal.

The metal plating process is frequently required to ensure some properties or performance of die castings or CNC machined parts. Junying (diecasting-mould.com) can provide various types of metal plating services, such as chrome plating, nickel plating, tin plating, and other electroplating surface treatments, to meet your specific needs, whether you want to improve the aesthetic appeal or functional characteristics of your aluminum/zinc die casting parts. We'll provide dependable and affordable electroplating services and other metal finishing services to companies and clients across a variety of industries, including aerospace, security locks, automotive, electrical, medical, and others, as an experienced metal fabrication and die casting products manufacturing company. Personalized plating services to assist you in developing high-quality, low-cost key products.

Junying offers a variety of metal plating services.
Junying provides a variety of plating surface treatment services for die castings and CNC parts, including but not limited to:
1. Nickel plating: nickel electroplating or electroless nickel plating are two different types of nickel plating. Electroless nickel plating is a chemical process that deposits an even layer of nickel-phosphorus alloy on the surface of a solid substrate, whereas nickel electroplating is a technique for electroplating nickel onto a metal part. Nickel plating can be used to improve the wear resistance and decorative effect of die-casting lock parts, shower fixtures, cutlery, and other household items.
2. Electroplating: an electroplating technique deposits chromium on the surface of a metal workpiece for decorative purposes or to improve hardness and corrosion resistance. Depending on the thickness of the chromium layer, chrome plating can be classified as either decorative or hard. Chrome plating is ideal for a variety of applications, including automotive parts, furniture, and industrial equipment. Chromium is frequently combined with nickel to create multi-layer platings.
3. Tin plating: an electrical current is used to deposit a coating of solderable tin onto the surface of parts. Tin plating can result in a gleaming or dingy appearance. Tin plating or tinning is an extremely cost-effective process for various metal parts because it is readily available compared to other metals, and it also offers great corrosion resistance and excellent solderability. Tin plating can be used in a variety of industries, including food, electronics, aerospace, telecommunications, and jewelry.
