Electroplating is the process of plating one metal onto another by hydrolysis, most commonly for decorative purposes or to prevent corrosion of a metal. There are also specific types of electroplating such as copper plating, silver plating, and chromium plating.
A simple example of the electroplating process is the electroplating of copper in which the metal to be plated (copper) is used as the anode, and the electrolyte solution contains the ion of the metal to be plated (Cu 2+ in this example). Copper goes into solution at the anode as it is plated at the cathode.
Plating is a surface covering in which a metal is deposited on a conductive surface. Plating has been done for hundreds of years; it is also critical for modern technology. Plating is used to decorate objects, for corrosion inhibition, to improve solderability, to harden, to improve wearability, to reduce friction, to improve paint adhesion, to alter conductivity, to improve IR reflectivity ...
Electroplating is a process where the ions of a metal are transferred by an electric field in a solution to coat a conductive object. Cheaper metals like copper can be electroplated with silver, nickel or gold to give them a protective coating.
Zinc plating and tinning are the most common methods for such protection. In both cases, iron is coated from the outside with a layer of metal, which is resistant to air and moisture due to forming a dense oxide on the surface. In this video you can see how a rusty metal object becomes silvery and shiny due to zinc plating.
Electroplating is a process of depositing a layer of any desired metal on another material by means of electricity. The term is also used for electrical [oxidation] of [anion]s on to a solid substrate, as in the formation of silver chloride on silver wire to make silver/silver-chloride electrodes.Electroplating is primarily used to change the surface properties of an object (such as abrasion ...
Electroplating. Electroplating is the process of using an electrical direct current to coat an electrically conductive object with a thin layer of metal. EPi offers a variety of high-quality electroplating processes that are ideal for all types of metal finishers. Learn More

While plating is most commonly viewed as a finishing process for metals, it can be used with great success on non-conductive materials as well. In particular, plating on plastic resins can be extremely effective in a wide range of industrial applications. Applying a metal coating on plastic is a high-precision process that can be customized […]
