Precious Metal Plating Metal Finishing

Electroplating can be done with precious metals for decorative and engineering purposes. Originally, precious metal plating was primarily used for decorative purposes in jewelry, flatware, holloware, and similar items. In more recent years, precious metal plating has expanded in the electronics industry due to its good electrical contact properties and resistance to corrosion and oxidation. Typical applications include printed circuit boards (PCBs), contacts, connectors, switching devices, and integrated circuit components. Precious metals used for plating include silver, gold, platinum, rhodium, palladium, and ruthenium. KEYWORDS for this process: platers
