How is metal plating done?
Metal plating is most commonly performed by immersing the metal in an acid solution with an anode electric current and cathode. The electricity causes negatively charged ions to move to the anode and positively charged ions to move to the cathode. This then covers the metal part in an even coating of metal. Metal plating often sees a lighter, lower-cost metal coated in a thin layer of more expensive metal such as nickel or zinc.

Why is it important?
Why is metal plating important? Well, it allows you to introduce the qualities of a specific kind of metal to your particular part.
In addition, the lifespan of metal components without plating can be significantly reduced.
Metal plating adds a layer of non-corrosive and/or high-shine material to the surface of the metal substrate, making it much more resistant to rust, corrosion, and wear.
