Please tell me the best methods of copper plating including details like volts, chemicals, time, current density and the proper operating conditions. F. K.
Your question is very broad and beyond the scope of what can be addressed in the Plating Clinic. There are a couple of sources of information that should be able to help you. One is the Metal Finishing 2003 Guidebook & Directory that has a chapter on copper plating. Another is the 2003 Products Finishing Directory, which has an article focused on copper plating (www.pfonline.com/articles/pfd0309) The third is a recent book, Electroplating and Electroless Plating of Copper & its Alloys.
