The purpose of electroplating is to obtain a metallic coating having different properties or dimensions than that of the base metal. The properties that can be achieved through plating are: corrosion protection, improved appearance, wear protection, hardness, lubricity, solder ability, conductivity and resistance to high temperatures.
