That is far too open-ended, Mr. Alam. You need to start with zincate. Then copper cyanide or electroless nickel. But you haven't told us your situation in terms of plating experience, and you haven't mentioned anything about the application. So I don't know if you're trying to write an aerospace spec, or refurbish a single item as a hobby. Please tell us what you are trying to plate, and why, and your experience level in plating. Thanks!
