Copper plating

We have continued to develop our copper plating process techniques since 1970, designing and building our own equipment while striving for optimum performance and quality.

Today we boast extensive facilities for copper plating rolls of all sizes, from very large chill rolls and conductor rolls to large volume work for the printing industry. The copper produced in our vats is fine-grained and highly ductile. We use it to deposit thicknesses from a few microns to in excess of 20mm.

Although copper is relatively corrosion resistant it is subject to rapid tarnishing and staining if exposed to the atmosphere. Consequently, electro-deposited copper is rarely used unprotected and is normally overlaid with chrome or nickel.

Our manufacturing centre has the capability to machine and polish copper rollers down to very fine limits and to apply various textures prior to chrome plating.
