I am a plating supervisor for a company that does a lot of copper plating. I have looked for a good source of information on the subject and have come up pretty much empty handed. Can you give me a few sources of information on copper plating? F. R.
Here are some good sources of information. Start with the Metal Finishing Guidebook and Directory, 2003 edition. The chapter on copper plating is basic and to the point. Next, you can find a lot of information on the subject in the ASM Handbook, 10th edition, Volume 5, Surface Engineering. The book is available from ASM International. You may be able to find this book in your local library.
A brand new book, Electroplating and Electroless Plating of Copper & its Alloys, edited by N. Kanani, Finishing Publications, 2003 is available from ASM International. It’s a good book to add to your library.
