What is functional plating?

The functional plating is a plating technique to impart a function taking advantage of the properties of the plating film.

It can be given electrical properties, mechanical properties, physical properties, chemical properties, optical properties and thermal properties.

The term is used to represent a third category of plating,

  • 1) Decorative plating
  • 2) Anti-corrosive plating (Anti-rust plating)
  • 3) Function plating
