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
  • oxides

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.
