Copper Plating Processes for Decorative Applications
Copper plating processes may vary in composition to satisfy customers’ requirements for specific decorative applications.
Technic offers a variety of copper solutions, such as cyanide, cyanide-free, dye-free, satin, and acid electrolytic copper. Copper’s high throwing power provides excellent adhesion to base metals as well as a flawless, mirror-like deposit.
Thanks to its exceptional corrosion resistance, copper is a popular choice as a functional finish and growing aesthetic in furniture and fashion accessories, such as hand bags and footwear.
Acid copper plating is often utilised as a replacement for nickel-based processes in all decorative applications where nickel-free materials are required. It provides a layer of excellent levelling power underneath the barrier layer (white bronze or palladium plating) and the final layer (gold, silver, rhodium or ruthenium plating).
