How to increase the adhesion and quality of electroplated layers

Release time:


The following measures can be taken to increase the adhesion and quality of the electroplated layer:

The following measures can be taken:
1. Surface preparation: Before electroplating, ensure that the surface of the object is clean, smooth and free of impurities such as oil and oxides. Mechanical treatment (such as grinding, polishing) or chemical treatment (such as pickling, degreasing) can be used to remove surface contaminants and improve the contact and adhesion between the plating solution and the substrate. Surface activation: After surface preparation, chemical activation methods, such as acidic activators or alkaline activators, can be used to improve the activity and affinity of the substrate surface, so that the plating solution is well attached to the substrate surface.
3. Pre-plating: For some materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum alloy, etc., a suitable pre-plating layer can be performed first, such as copper plating, nickel plating, etc. The pre-coating can provide better adhesion and sealing of the electroplated layer, and increase the quality and durability of the overall coating.
4. Control parameters: In the process, strictly control the temperature, pH value, current density, time and other parameters of the plating solution to ensure uniform coating and high quality. Different materials and requirements may require different parameters, which should be adjusted according to specific conditions.
5. Optimize the formulation of plating solution: reasonably select and optimize the formulation of plating solution, including metal salts, additives and buffers. Appropriate additives can improve the stability of the plating solution and the quality of the coating, and improve the adhesion and corrosion resistance.
6, control time: time control is also very important. Too short a time may result in weak plating and insufficient adhesion, while too long a time may cause over-plating and quality problems. Therefore, according to the specific requirements and experimental data, determine the appropriate time range.
7. Quality inspection and control: Establish a complete quality inspection system to inspect and control the quality of the electroplating layer. Common inspection methods, such as thickness measurement, adhesion test, corrosion resistance test, etc., can be used to ensure that the quality and performance meet the requirements.
