Copper Plating

Alexandria Plating Industries, Inc. utilizes specialized equipment to electro-deposit a layer of copper upon a base substrate. Copper electroplating is a coating that can be applied for both engineering and decorative purposes, using a cyanide bath. Copper electroplating can be used as a Heat Treatment Stop-off on steel for nitriding and carburizing. This means that copper electroplated portions of a steel part will be excluded from the heat treat process. Copper electroplating can also be used as a strike layer, providing a base coat for additional plating. Advantages of copper electroplating include: excellent electrical conductivity, good lubrication, and solderability.
