PLATING SERVICES ON ALUMINIUM
DIPLEXERS, FILTERS & LIDS
Silver: The energy and power distribution industries rely in silver electroplating of aluminum to improve corrosion protection and surface conductivity. Silver also provides good lubricity and solderability.
Copper: Most of us know that copper is an excellent conductor of electricity. Thus, copper electroplating is a preferred metal finishing choice in the manufacturing of electronic circuit boards, semiconductors, and other electronic parts and components. In addition to being highly conductive, copper offers improved adhesion
Electroless nickel: An electroless nickel coating provides exceptional corrosion resistance and will increase the lubricity, hardness and wear resistance of the aluminum substrate. Electroless nickel can also serve as an undercoating to strengthen and promote the adhesion of other plated metals.

It's hard to imagine going through an entire day without seeing, using or coming into contact with an object that is made of aluminum. This soft, lightweight, durable metal can be found in everything from aircraft and vehicle parts and components to food and beverage containers, foil wrap, windows and doors, lighting poles and much more.
With more than 25 years of metal finishing experience, you can count on LEPL to provide superior aluminum electroplating services that will exceed your quality and performance expectations and meet your budget requirements. We also have the expertise to help you select the best aluminum alloy plating process for your manufacturing projects.

THE NEED FOR AN ALUMINIUM ELECTROPLATING PROCESS
In many manufacturing applications, it is helpful and in some instances, necessary to apply an additional coating onto an aluminum part for purposes such as increasing corrosion protection, providing greater wear resistance or enhancing the appearance of a product. Electroplating is a common metal finishing technique that can achieve each of these objectives. This process involves immersing the aluminum workpiece into an electrolytic solution and introducing an electric current to deposit dissolved ions of another metal onto the surface.
An alternative to the aluminum electroplating process is electroless plating, which does not require electricity to deposit the metal ions. Instead, deposition occurs via an autocatalytic reaction.
