Magnetic property of stainless steel affected by plating





2002

Our firm produces decorative faucets and accessories. We are in the midst of designing a bath fixture which calls for stainless steel material which needs to be attracted to a magnet. Our concern is if the magnetic properties will be retained once the stainless steel component is plated. Can you advise us if the magnetic property will be dissipated after plating.

Sincerely,

Plating will not substantially affect magnetic characteristics. If you were to plate with .0002" of a non-magnetic metal, the plating will hold your magnet .0002" away from the magnetic substrate, but that is substantially thinner than most paint, so it will have less effect than paint.
