Copper plating on aluminium wire





dear sirs

I would like to know if it's possible to perform a electro plating of copper on a aluminium wire ?

If possible, do you know any company that usually do this? Thank you

It's not only possible, but there are hundreds of thousands of miles of copper plated aluminum wire in American homes. The wire manufacturers do this, although if your needs are smaller, there are companies who can build a wire plater for you. Sorry but the forum is for camaraderie and technical info, not commercial info, and we can't suggest vendors.
