Copper plating





2000

I would like to know if I can plate die cast or pot metal with electroless copper. Can I do this or must I use electro plating or cyanide? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

To my knowledge, you can't beneficially apply electroless copper to die cast or pot metal, and must use cyanide copper electroplating (or possibly copper pyrophosphate) but please give us more specifics about your company's aim here so that we don't have to limit our answer to a yes or no.
