Tech Brief: Elements of Electroplating

August 13, 2018

Share This:


Technology

Electroplating is a common manufacturing process that applies a thin layer of one metal onto another. The U.S. penny, for example, has been made of zinc with a thin, electroplated coating of copper since 1982. Jewelry and flatware are also frequently electroplated to improve visual appearance or provide wear and corrosion resistance. Today, electroplating is widely used in the electronics industry to deposit conducting metals used in printed circuit boards, connectors, and most recently in semiconductor interconnects.
