NOT ALL

ELECTROPLATING
COMPANIES ARE
THE SAME
Electroplating is a process that works by using electrical current to
coat a conductive object with a thin layer of material, such as zinc,
zinc-iron or zinc-nickel. Plating is primarily used to bestow a desired
property such as corrosion protection, rubber to metal bonding,
abrasion and wear resistance, or aesthetic qualities to a surface that
otherwise lacks that property.

Types of Electroplating
Specialty plating facilities can plate different base
materials utilizing various surface finishes. At Dekalb

What Factors Should be Considered
in an Electroplating Company?

As with any process, not all electroplating companies follow the
same steps and therefore do not produce the same results. For this
reason other process and business practices should be considered
when evaluating electroplating companies:

þ Quality þ Focused customer care

þ Consistency þ Expert support and guidance

þ Experience þ Specific Capabilities

þ Certifications/Accreditations þ Value added services

þ Cleanliness þ Solution-oriented

þ Turn-around time þ Environmental friendliness
