What is electroplating?

Electroplating involves passing an electric current through a solution called an electrolyte. This is done by dipping two terminals called electrodes into the electrolyte and connecting them into a circuit with a battery or other power supply. The electrodes and electrolyte are made from carefully chosen elements or compounds. When the electricity flows through the circuit they make, the electrolyte splits up and some of the metal atoms it contains are deposited in a thin layer on top of one of the electrodes—it becomes electroplated. All kinds of metals can be plated in this way, including gold, silver, tin, zinc, copper, cadmium, chromium, nickel, platinum, and lead.

What are the benefits of the mold plating?

Electroplating nicke can play a good role in horizontal corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, rust prevention, and easy surface cleaning to make metal mechanical mold parts more durable. For example, the electroplating nickel plating and hanging chromium plating can also play a certain decorative role. The appearance of those small hardware products is more shiny and bright. It is precisely because there are many advantages to make the electroplating industry everlasting and electroplated products.Can also play a role in rust.

What are the benefits of the mould polishing plating?

The most common is the hard chrome plated plastic mold, because the raw materials are corrosive, especially ABAS, electric wood, these materials are more severe corrosion of the mold surface, the surface of the mold plated with a layer of hard chrome can be in the mold The surface forms a protective film, even if the plastic material is corrosive, acid and alkaline, and it erodes only the chrome plating layer on the surface of the mold, chromium is considered as heavy metal, and chromium is more resistant to corrosion, chromium is not only corrosion-resistant, but also Can play the role of rust-proof and wear-resistant friction, molds that are often relatively easy to remove, everyone will choose to chrome-plated to solve the problem of anti-deflowering.
