Question:

I am looking for information on different types of copper plating. Can you give me some direction on where to look? G.A.

Answer:

Since your question was sent by e-mail I assume you have access to a computer and the Internet. The first place to look is at the Products Finishing web site, www.pfonline.com and do a search under copper plating. You will find listed a number of papers on the subject. One paper in particular, Copper Plating by Dr. Donald Snyder, (www.pfonline.com/articles/pfd0014.html) is very complete. Another source of information is the Metal Finishing Guidebook and Directory.

An excellent book, Electroplating and Electroless Plating of Copper & its Alloys, edited by N. Kanani is available from ASM International, www.asm-intl.org.
