Silver Electroplating

Electroplating is a process that involves adding a coat of metal to an existing metal. This is carried out by using electrodeposition. The process is fairly simple and involves placing a negative charge on a metal and then placing it into a bath of solution that contains the metal that is to be plated onto the original piece.

In this solution, the metal is attracted to the negative charge, because it is positive. This causes a coating of metal on the new object that can then be adjusted to different thicknesses.

Zachrome offers a wide variety of electroplating for different aspects of marine materials. Our chrome electroplating gives a tough coating to metal structures to ensure that they are able to withstand the demands of marine applications.
