Electroplating is used to coat metal and plastic in order to optically improve the material, (e.g. gloss through chromium plating) or to functionally improve its surface properties (e.g. corrosion protection through zinc coating). In the electroplating machine, two metals - a cathode and an anode - are immersed in an electrolyte bath. When exposed to electric current, ions detach from the anode and deposit on the surface of the cathode. Complete electroplating machines are available also as used equipment. Thus at Surplex, you can buy at auction used machines as well as suitable systems.
