Electroplating for Furniture Components

Electroplating is a process where a thin layer of metal is deposited onto a conductive surface, usually for decorative purposes or to improve corrosion resistance. In furniture manufacturing, it's commonly used for hardware components such as handles, hinges, and frames.

The process entails:

Cleaning and Activation: The part to be plated is thoroughly cleaned and treated with an acidic solution to activate the surface for plating.

Electrolytic Bath: The component is immersed in an electrolyte solution containing metal ions, along with a cathode (the plating metal).

Electric Current Application: An electric current is passed through the solution, causing the metal ions to migrate and deposit onto the furniture component.

Common metals used in electroplating include nickel, copper, gold, and chromium, each offering distinct visual appeal and properties. Nickel plating, for example, provides a bright, silvery finish and excellent corrosion resistance, while chrome plating is valued for its high shine and durability.
