Can I barrel plate a part made of 416 stainless with copper?



(-----) February 1, 2008

We have a part mede of 416 stainless steel that is secured at assembly using a Loctite anerobic adhesive.

We've been working with our Loctite representative trying to find ways to facilitate the cure of the Loctite. Loctite recommends the use of a primer product that is essentially a copper salt solution. As I understand it, the copper ions will expedite the cure of the adhesive.

We are wondering if we could barrel plate these parts with a thin layer of copper to avoid the use & complications (use of personal protective equipment, hazardous waste management, etc.) of the primer?

I believe that you can be successful in Wood's nickel striking and then acid copper plating these parts in plating barrels.
