Electroplating is used to coat a surface with a thin layer of metal through electrochemical processes. HOW DOES IT WORK? The object to be plated is placed in a solution containing ions of the metal with which it is to be plated. When a negative charge is applied to the object, the positively charged metal […]
Advantages of Electroplating
Their is huge list of advantages of electroplating the metal. Few are here like –
It is used to protect the metal of a work-piece from the elements of nature that can lead toward corrosion and often, the failure of a metallic device. When plating is used for surgical and medical instruments it helps to preserve their longevity, and helps to ward off the risk of infections caused by microorganisms that can take refuge under the layers of corroded metal. Metals also look very nice and hence some plating are done only for attraction of metal looks.

Electroplating is a process that uses electrical current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a coherent metal coating on an electrode. The term is also used for electrical oxidation of anions onto a solid substrate, as in the formation silver chloride on silver wire to make silver/silver-chloride electrodes. Electroplating is primarily used […]
