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