The most rigorous control on plating baths is only one part of ensuring high-quality, reproducible results.
Pre-Cleaning Removes Impurities
The part to be plated must first be subject to a cleaning process prior that removes:
- surface grease
- adhered particulates
Any impurities that remain on the surface of the part will inhibit the adhesion of the deposited material leading to possible flaking, peeling, or part failure.
Not A Simple Process
Cleaning can be further complicated by the need to plate parts that are made up of several different materials.
