Barrel copper plating Cu
Barrel copper plating is principally used for industrial purposes, mainly applied as an underplate because of the good conductor quality it attributes to copper plated objects.
It is required when the objects to be plated are made of zamak.
Barrel copper plating can be applied as a final method of electroplating in cases when the copper plated objects are lacquered immediately after plating, in order to avoid oxidation (green coloration)!!!
Since 2001 barrel copper plating has been used in eurocents (1, 2 and 5 eurocents).
In our fully equipped chemical laboratory we conduct frequent quality controls, constantly inspecting the electrolytes’ state, as this is an essential condition for the achievement of the perfect result.
It is not uncommon that the shape of an object prevents or obstructs its electroplating!!!
Before deciding on the final design of an object, in case electroplating is necessary, please ask for our advice!!!
