In electroplating, the metal dissolved from the anode can be plated onto the cathode. The anode is provided with direct current, oxidizing and dissolving its metal atoms in the electrolyte solution. At the cathode, the dissolved metal ions are decreased and the metal is placed on the product. Electroplating helps in conduction of Electricity. In integrated circuits that are used in computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices, use good conductors of electricity such as gold and silver.

What chemicals are used in plating?

Electroplating uses metals including chromium, nickel, cadmium, zinc, copper, silver and gold, dissolvable salts incorporating cyanide and sulphate, acids and alkaline solutions.

What are the three advantages of electroplating?

Electroplating has many advantages: (i) It is used to coat metal surfaces with desired metal coatings, for decoration purposes. (ii) It saves metal surfaces from rusting. (iii) It saves corrosion of surfaces of metals.

What is the key advantage of electroplating?

It improves overall quality and increases longevity of the substrate. Some types of electroplating protect against premature tarnishing in certain kinds of metals and also reduce the likelihood of scratching. Products such as silverware retain their attractiveness and hold their value over time.
