Copper plating is used in a very broad range of applications and coats your desired components with a thin layer of copper for conductivity or aesthetic considerations. Copper is a soft, malleable metal that has served mankind well for thousands of years. Some of the more notable qualities of this reddish-brown metal are its ability to conduct electricity and its inherent flexibility. Electroplating copper can be extremely valuable in applications such as the manufacturing of electronic parts and components, as well as products used in the aerospace and defense industries. Copper is also widely used for plating on plastics and other non-metallic surfaces. Key copper electroplating benefits include excellent corrosion protection, high thickness build, and heat treatment stop-off.
