A: Aluminum is an easy material to plate if you properly prepare the substrate. It is most important to remember that aluminum cannot be handled in the same manner as steel substrates. Aluminum can be zinc plated by first using a zincate process followed by either a cyanide or acid zinc plating solution. You cannot plate directly on aluminum-based materials. You can find additional information regarding plating on aluminum by doing a search on www.pfonline.com.
