Decorative Metal Finishing offers both traditional alkaline cyanide copper plating services as well has high-speed acid copper plating services for a wide range of engineering applications. Our precision barrel, rack and vibratory copper plating services are currently employed in numerous industries including the ammunition, HVAC, power distribution, heat treatment, electronic, telecommunication and fastener industries.
Decorative Metal Finishing’s copper plating services can be utilized as a final plate or as an under plate to subsequent deposits such as our tin plating, gold plating, silver plating and nickel-plating finishes. Decorative Metal Finishing provides unmatched capability in heavy build copper plating services with plating thicknesses up to 0.020 inches per side. Applications of heavy build copper plating services include the eddy current drives, lead and frangible core bullets (reference Heavy Build Copper Plating of Bullets in our Finishing Solutions section), braze fittings and heat treatment applications for a stop-off prior to carburizing or nit riding.
Copper Plating Services – Copper Properties
Copper is a soft, ductile, lustrous metal with a pink hue that exhibits very high thermal and electrical conductivity. Pure copper is very soft and malleable but can have considerable strength when alloyed with elements such as beryllium, chromium or tellurium. Most commonly copper is alloyed with zinc to form brass or with tin to form bronze alloys.
For plating applications copper is commonly used as an under plating to enhance adhesion of deposits, improve electrical properties, impair migration of alloying elements into the final plated deposit or to improve corrosion resistance of the overall deposit. As a final deposit, copper plating services are used for enhancing the brazing, thermal or electrical conductivity of substrate materials, as a high temperature lubricant, as a heat treatment stop-off or for jacketing of projectiles. Copper can be plated matte to bright and with a wide range of deposit hardness and ductility.
