Gold plating is a specialized electrochemical method used to deposit a thin layer of gold onto a conductive surface. Typically, the surface being plated is a metal base that allows the passage of current to form a complete circuit. By immersing the item in a plating solution, gold particles bond with the plated article, resulting in a lustrous golden surface. In this process, the item being plated serves as the cathode.
Gold Plating of Plastics: Advancements and Specialized Techniques
While metals are commonly gold plated, it is also possible to gold plate certain plastics, such as PS3 consoles, game controllers, and cell phone cases. However, before plating, these plastics must undergo a treatment to render them electrically conductive. The gold plating of plastics is a highly specialized technique that involves multiple processes beyond the initial application of a silver conductive paint.
Exception: Automotive Logos and Emblems
It is worth noting that automotive logos and emblems often deviate from the general gold plating process. These components are already electrically conductive, requiring only the removal of a chromium layer to expose the underlying nickel before gold plating.
Precise and Controlled Pump Systems for Gold Plating Processes
To keep up with technological advancements, it is crucial for pump systems to maintain precise control over the precious plating solution. Uniformity and the absence of particle contamination are key factors for successful gold plating. QEEHUA PUMP specializes in providing chemical fluid equipment that powers production processes.
