Electroplating (Crowood Metalworking Guides) (Hardcover)

Not available to order


Electroplating in the home workshop can seem a daunting task due to the range of chemicals, the unfamiliar processes, and the underlying chemistry involved. However, the results of a well-cleaned item and a well-maintained electrolyte are impressive and, compared to sending parts to be industrially electroplated, very cost effective. The practical advice given in Electroplating provides you with the confidence and ability to create an electroplating tank of your own. This book will guide you through the processes and the equipment needed to start your own plating system, the history and scientific basics of the process, and safety information, including personal safety and the correct disposal of chemicals.
