Mandar,

Brush plating has been a well established plating process since the late 1950's. It is a portable method of plating, anodizing and electropolishing localized areas on parts, both large and small, for salvage and repair and for OEM applications.

Its main benefits are as follows: First, the process can be done pretty much anywhere, in the shop or out in the field. This is great if parts are too large for tanks, or if shipping costs are an issue, or if turn time is critical. Second, less masking is required since the entire part is not being immersed in the tank - the localized area to be plated is isolated with simple masking techniques and the plating solution contacts only that area.

This process is approved and is used across a broad range of industries including aircraft/aerospace, marine, pulp and paper, printing, power generation and distribution, and electric motor repair just to name a few.

For more information on brush plating, check out the Metal Finishing Guidebook and Directory, and the ASM Handbook Volume 5: Surface Engineering.
