Engineering or mechanical properties Background The cathode would be the piece to be plated and the anode would be either a sacrificial anode or an inert anode, normally either platinum or carbon graphite form. Sometimes plating occurs on racks or barrels for efficiency when plating many products. Please refer to electrolysis for more information. The process is undergone using silver as the anode, and a screw as the cathode. The electrons are transferred from the anode to the cathode and is underwent in a solution containing silver.

It is the purpose of the instructor to familiarize the student with the beacons that will guide him through this fog. It is also subject to similar limitations. Providing all the required information would result in a multi-volume encyclopedia rather than a usable handbook.
In the pages that follow, you will therefore find frequent references to other sources where more detailed explanations or information can be found. The present goal is proper guidance and the provision ofthe most frequently required facts, not everything that is available.
In the 13 years since the last edition, changes in the finishing industry have been profound but in one sense have resulted in simplifying matters rather than complicating them. Because technology has advanced to a level of complexity rendering "home brew" impracti cal in many cases, dependence on proprietary compounds has become common.
Therefore, detailed solution compositions are often no longer significant or even practical. It is thus more important to provide instruction about the factors that affect the choice of the most suitable type of proprietary material. Most Read.

The result is the effective transfer of copper from the anode source to a plate covering the cathode. The plating is most commonly a single metallic element , not an alloy. However, some alloys can be electrodeposited, notably brass and solder.

Electroforming - Magical Metal Creations! What Is Electroforming All About? Copper Electroforming or as my grandkids call it "Copperizing", is a method of covering non-metallic objects with layers of copper. I have done this to a tree leaf, a pine cone, a baseball, many seashells, glass of many shapes and semi-precious stones like amethyst.
