Process: Plating

Overview

Plating is an umbrella term that describes the process of enhancing the appearance or resistance of a component by depositing a metal onto the surface of the part. There are many different types and methods of plating available such as electroplating, electroless plating and zinc plating, with the method and material plated to the component dependent on the objective. Gold or silver plating is regularly used within the production of jewellery for aesthetic reasons, whilst components for industries such as aerospace and marine are commonly plated to ensure robustness and protect against corrosion.
