Electro-Plating Magnets


Is it possible to electro-plate magnets?

Yes. Just make sure your filtration is excellent.

The dissolved metallic ions that perform the plating need an electric charge, not a magnetic one, to plate. As Ted said, good filtration is essential. Also, placing some clean idle magnets inside the bath before processing your parts may help trap the last elusive particles. And remember to avoid particles get stuck to your parts before plating since cleaning and pretreatment cycles will not take them off.
