Galvanic silver plating

Silver plating is widely used in the manufacture of tableware, cutlery, watches and jewellery. The silver layers can be polished down to a lustrous finish and, if necessary, repolished. For improved lustre, a bright nickel layer is sometimes applied as an undercoat.

In addition, silver is the most electrically conductive metal and has high thermal conductivity, which is why silver plating is also widely used in electrical engineering for electrical connections and conductors. Silver also has good reflectivity and is highly resistant to various chemicals.

  • Beautiful, lustrous, white precipitate
  • Precious metal, so no oxidation in air
  • Excellent conductivity
  • Good reflectivity
  • Good resistance to concentrated lyes
  • Layer thicknesses from approx. 2 µm to 50 µm
