Plating of copper onto aluminium balls w/o dilution of electrolyte


2002

HOW CAN COPPER BE PLATED ON SMALL DIAMETER ALUMINIUM BALLS (1.0 mm) WITHOUT DILUTING THE CONCENTRATION OF COPPER SULPHATE ELECTROLYTIC SOLUTION ? WE ARE USING PURE COPPER AS AN ANODE IN THE ELECTROPLATING PROCESS.

Although phosphorized anodes might help somewhat, Bhanjibhai, I think the principal problem may be aluminum dissolving into the solution by immersion plating. Making sure that you have hot entry should help.
