Copper Plating (Electroplating)

 

copper plating ams 2418 copper electroplating

Copper electroplating is a high conductive deposit, matt to semi-bright finish. It is used for anti-galling of threads, including premium threads on pipe couplings.

It is also utilized to increase adhesion properties on sophisticated shaped components requiring gold plating or nickel plating.

COUPLINGS COPPER PLATING CAPABILITIES

  • 6 Feet process Tank, with 1 ton capacity hoist.
  • copper plating on ID and OD threads or areas
  • Selective plating of copper on specified areas, ID or OD.
  • X-Ray Fluorecense and Magnetic Induction coating thickness Measurement capabilities
  • Copper plating on Chrome 13, Chrome 28, Stainless Steel, Steel, and other steel alloys

 

What Are The Benefits Of Using Copper Plating?

  • Anti-Gauling

Copper can be used as a lubricant on threads, ensuring anti-galling of threads.

  • Good Electrical Conductivity

As an excellent conductor of electricity, copper is used as the standard in the electronics manufacturing industry.

  • Flexibility

Due to its soft properties and the ability to maintain good adhesion, copper is ideal for metal objects that require flexibility in their application

  • Excellent Undercoating

Providing uniform smooth cover over based metals, copper helps to improve the adhesion on all types of plated finishes

  • Corrosion Protection

Being used in electroplating, a thin layer of copper coating another metal material via electrolysis can greatly improve the resistance to corrosion

Industrial Applications

Being a soft metal with high thermal and electrical conductivity, Copper is the material of choice for the electronics and premium thread couplings industries. Furthermore, copper's comparatively low cost to other metal alternatives such as silver and gold enhances its standing as the most efficient metal for electrical conductivity.

For engineering applications, including contacts, connectors, and threads (anti-gauling).
