Product description

Electrochemical deposition of a thin metallic layer on the surface of a conductive metallic component is called electroplating. This primarily improves the characteristics of a component such as, for example, wear resistance, corrosion resistance or anti-friction properties. A metallic or conductive component is connected to the negative pole (cathode) of a rectifier and placed in a water-based electrolyte in which conductive salts and metal ions of the metal to be deposited are contained. At the same time, the positive pole (anode) of the rectifier is connected to metal plates consisting of the metal to be deposited. Turning on the rectifier, a current begins to flow, which dissolves metal ions in the electrolyte on the side of the anode by oxidation and thus continuously supplies the electrolyte with new metal ions. At the same time, a metal layer is deposited from the enriched electrolyte onto the component, which is attached to the cathode.
