How should stainless steel hardware products be treated before electroplating?

2022-04-27

Hardware products can be said to be ubiquitous in our lives. For example, our doors and windows, bathroom products, etc. will use hardware components. So how much do you know about hardware parts processing? Today, I will share with you the processing work of stainless steel hardware products before electroplating.

1. When electroplating, pay attention to the matching of the coating metal and the base metal.
2. If the high temperature baking treatment is to be carried out, the stress between the product and the coating should be considered. For example, after zinc or aluminum alloy plating, it cannot be baked at a high temperature.
3. The rationality of the baking temperature should also be paid attention to when baking the sealing paint for the electroplating processing of stainless steel hardware products.
4. The pretreatment of the electroplating processing of stainless steel hardware products should be done well. The cleaner the substrate is treated, the atoms of the substrate metal can be fully exposed, which is the key to the good adhesion of the subsequent plating layer.
5. When superimposing different coatings on stainless steel hardware products, pay attention to the matching between different coatings. The former coating should be cleaned, and if necessary, weak etching should be performed to eliminate the oxide film of the previous coating.

The above is about the things we need to pay attention to before the processing and electroplating of stainless steel hardware products. For more knowledge of hardware components, the editor will share with you next time.
