Although traditionally used for electroforming or decorative purposes, copper is an excellent conductor and copper plating can be used for EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) shielding purposes.
The deposit from copper plating is very bright and has excellent levelling properties. One typical application for copper plating is for large aerials fitted under railway carriages. In addition, copper plating naturally kills bacteria. Therefore, copper plating is frequently used to plate laboratory and medical equipment.
To complement our industrial copper plating services, we also offer decorative copper plating for clients ranging from independent customers and niche boutiques, through to large multinational chains and prestigious brands. We assist with projects of all sizes, plating products small or large, used for a range of applications.
Copper can offer a unique finish which gives a highly polished copper-pink appearance. We also have a range of lacquers available for copper plating solutions which prevent tarnishing of the copper plating. Alternatively, when left uncoated a weathered effect known as 'verdigris' can be achieved naturally as a result of prolonged exposure to air or seawater, giving a unique bright blue-green patina.

The electroless nickel plating process is a high quality, cost effective solution for coating metals such as mild or stainless steel.
The simple process of diffused nickel plating is the most effective coating to ensure the highest levels of corrosion resistance.
