Electroplating is a surface coating method used to coat the surface of one metal (or alloy) with one or two metals (or alloys) by passing electricity between two electrodes immersed in an electrolytic solution where one of the electrodes is the substrate to be plated. The electrolyte solution contains the metal ions of the metal that is to be used as the coating.
When the electric current is passed, the metal atoms (or ions) in the electrolyte solution get deposited on the substrate, forming a thin layer. The chemicals used in the electroplating process are known as electroplating chemicals. These include electrolyte solutions, sealers, passivates, cleaners and pre- and post-treatment electroplating chemicals, to name a few. Passivates make the substrate inactive to any further chemical reaction, avoiding oxidation and corrosion reactions.

Electroplating chemicals are used to clean, coat and engrave metallic surfaces. Electroplating chemicals enhance the physical appearance of metals. Along with that, electroplating chemicals also alter the metals’ corrosion resistance, electric and wear resistance and tarnish resistance and electric conductivity. Electroplating chemicals often contain additives that brighten and/or enhance the uniformity of the plating metal while influencing the corrosion resistance. The most widely use electroplated metals include iron, nickel, copper, zinc, gold and silver. Aluminum, stainless steel, lead and magnesium have limited applications as these are difficult to electroplate.
