Information of Electroplating

Electroplating is a process that uses electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a thin coherent metal coating on an electrode. The term is also used for electrical oxidation of anions onto a solid substrate, as in the formation silver chloride on silver wire to make silver/silver-chloride electrodes. Electroplating is primarily used to change the surface properties of an object (e.g. abrasion and wear resistance, corrosion protection, lubricity, aesthetic qualities, etc.), but may also be used to build up thickness on undersized parts or to form objects by electroforming.

Type Color Material Description
Burnishing Black CS-SS-BS Allowing to get bright black balls, with better corrosion resistance and surface finish.
Nitriding Grey SS Surface hardening termochemical treatment, provided by a diffusion of nitrogen on the surface. Wear and abrasion resistance of balls are higly increased.
Phosphating Grey/Black CS Surface conversion processing based on zinc and manganese oxides, providing better corrosion and wear resistance, lubricant properties increase, allows deposition of other substances if required (oils, polymers, rubber, wax).
Chrome Plating Silver CS-SS-BS-Cu-Bra Improving surface finish and increasing the corrosion resistance. The surface can be bright or matte finish.
Brass Plating Bright Yellow CS-SS-BS-Al-Cu-Bra Electrolytic treatment used mainly for decorative applications. It makes easier the adherence of rubber on the surface of the metals.
Copper Plating Pink/Red CS-SS-Al-Cu-Bra It is used mainly to increase the electric conductivity of balls.
Nickel Plating Silver Grey CS-Al-Cu Galvanic processing allowing to get harder balls, with higher corrosion and wear resistance. It is used even for decorative applications.
Tin Plating Silver White CS-SS-Al-Cu-Bra Electrolytic treatment allowing to improve corrosion resistance and electric conductivity of balls. It is used in electronic and foodstuff industry.
Gold Plating Bright Yellow CS-SS-BS-Cu-Bra Electrilytic treatment mainly used in the electronic field and for decorative applications.
Silver Plating Bright White CS-SS-Al-Cu-Bra Electrolytic treatment, improving corrosion resistance and surface finish. It is used even in the electrical and optical fields. It is protected by a passivation.
Sealing Zinc Grey/Blue CS-BS-Cu Sealing compound zinc plating processing increasing corrosion resistance the corrosion resistace.
Yellow Zinc Silver Yellow CS-BS-Cu Standard Zinc Plating processing allowing to get a good corrosion resistance (better than white zinc plating).
White Zinc Silver Iridescent CS-BS-Cu Electrolysis process used to increase corrosion resistance, it is particularly suitable even for decorative applications. They can be subjected even to Chromiting (iridescent color).
Black Zinc Black CS-SS-BS-Cu Protective/decorative zinc plating process, it allows to obtain a bright and homogeneous surface finishing.
