Electroplating

Electroplating is a process of coating the surfaces of a metal object with a layer of a different metal through electrochemical means, usually to exploit different properties of the materials.

The object that is electroplated is wired with copper wire and immersed in the solution which is made up of dissolved salts of metal. In scientific terms the object becomes the negative DC supply. To complete the circuit anodes are immersed in the solution which is connected to a positive lead. The metal from the anode is transferred to the negative, also known as the cathode which is the object to be plated.

Electroplating is primarily used to restore an article back to its original condition or as a decorative purpose. The process of Electroplating comes in many forms such as Copper Nickel and Chrome Plating.
