Preparation and post-treatment steps in Silver Plating
I would like too know how exactly -if possible- to clean a piece before making a silver plating for industrial activity. I would like to know too, if after having make a silver plating, we have to do a post treatment in order to have a better treatment.
Thanks a lot

Hi, Mr. Hubert
How to clean the metal depends on what the metal is.
The Electroplating Engineering Handbook has detailed instructions for pretreating most any metal.
Silver tarnishes very readily, so you need to discourage the tarnishing with a product like Technic's Tarniban; there are other post treatments available. Good luck.
