Electroplating involves the deposition of thin layers of metal on to the surface of metal components and metal stock. Understanding the steps of electroplating processes and the factors that affect coating properties, adhesion, and defects is critical for supplier selection, solving electrodeposited coating quality problems, and writing thorough electodeposited coating specifications.

Watch this video of a past webinar to learn about the electroplating process steps, plated layer properties and their evaluations, and plated layer defects and their causes.

A pdf document of the webinar slides will be available for downloading. You will have 14-days access to the webinar recording.
