Copper plating

Copper plating

Copper platingCopper plating is the process in which a layer of copper from 1 to 300 micron or more is deposited on the item to be plated.
The copper coatings are featured by high level of adhesion with the various metals as well as by high plasticity and conductivity.
The application field of the copper-coated parts depend on the copper layer either it is used separately or the copper layer is applied as sublayer (bottom layer) to cover the surface with the other platings.
These are the steel, aluminum and zinc surfaces, which are covered with copper.
The copper coatings are easily oxidized and covered with oxide deposit acquiring iridescent stains and spots.
The main scope of the copper plating services includes:

Copper plating as a separate coating

  • DECORATIVE PURPOSES
    Currently the ancient cooper items are much sought after. Copper plating allows covering with the copper coatings, which are alloyed and look as produced in former times.
    New copper coating is specified by light pink color (shining or dead surface depending on the technology).
  • GALVANOPLASTICS
    Copper plating is used to manufacture metal copies of the items of various shape and size. First of all, wax or plastic core is produced, which is to be coated with the electro conductive lacquer and then with a copper layer.
    This technology is often used when producing the souvenirs, jewelry, repousse works, wave conductors and matrixes.
  • TECHNICAL PURPOSES
    Metal copper plating is especially critical when the matter involves the electrical technologies. Owing to the low prices set for copper plating works if compared with the silver or gold coatings, the copper coverings are often used when coppering the buses, contracts, electrodes and other elements to be operated under voltage. Copper plating is often used as coating of the surfaces intended to be soldered. Copper plating and other galvanic coatings

  • MULTI LAYER PROTECTIVE AND DECORATIVE COATINGS
    As a rule when applied together with nickel and chromium (three-layer protective and decorative coating) and other metals as and interlayer to increase the base adherence with alloy as well as to achieve more durable and shiny coatings.
  • PROTECTION OF THE SURFACE AREAS WHEN CARBURISING
    Copper plating is often used to protect the surface areas of the steel parts from carburization. The surfaces which are to be cut are covered with copper (hard carbonized surface layers resist this treatment and copper protects the coated areas from carbon diffusion).
  • REPAIR AND RECOVERY OF THE ITEMS
    Metal copper plating is often used when renewing the chromium-plated parts of the automotive transport. At this, thick copper layer equal to 100 – 250 micron and over is applied to seal the metal cavities and imperfections. Then this layer is to be polished and act as new base to cover with the next coatings.
