Electroplating refers to a process that involves the use of electrical current to minimize dissolved metal cations to form a sound metal coating on an electrode. In simple words, electroplating is the process wherein a metal coating is produced by electrolytic deposition. Electroplating is used for wear –resistance, to protect against corrosion and lubricity. Electroplating uses electro deposition. Electroplating is used in industry for coating metal objects with a thin layer of a different metal, such as chromium plating on car parts, bath taps, kitchen gas burners, wheel rims and many others. Electroplating is also used in many industries for functional and decorative purposes, such as in nickel coins.
