Copper Plating Services
Mid-Atlantic Finishing Corp. supplies innovative and extensive expertise in functional copper plating services to MIL-C-14550 and AMS-2418. We offer precision barrel and rack copper plating services which are currently employed in numerous industries including NASA, DoD, aerospace, electronic, telecommunications and the fastener industries.
For plating applications, copper is commonly used as an underplating to enhance adhesion of deposits, improve electrical properties, impair migration of alloying elements into the final plated deposit or to improve corrosion resistance of overall deposit.
Copper in color and matte to very shiny finish. Good corrosion resistance when used as an undercoat. A number of copper processes are available. Each designed for a specific purpose:
Brightness – the eliminate the need for buffing
High Speed – for electro-forming
Fine Grain – to prevent case hardening.
As a final deposit, copper plating services are used for enhancing the brazing, thermal or electrical conductivity of substrate materials. as a high temperature lubricant, as a heat treatment stop-off. Copper can be plated matte to bright and with a wide range of deposit hardness and ductility.
