Abstract

Chemically induced copper plating of various products is typically accomplished by immersion in a plating bath with the product held in stainless steel product holders. This immersion results in the unwanted coating of the holders with copper which not only reduces the chemicals used in plating but the holders must be periodically cleaned. This undesirable plating is reduced when the stainless steel holders are coated with a layer of Halar.
