Specifications for Copper


  • Copper in color and matte to a very shiny finish.

  • Good corrosion resistance when used as undercoat.

  • A number of copper processes are available, each designed for a specific purpose: Brightness (to eliminate the need for buffing), High speed (for electroforming) and Fine grain (to prevent case hardening), etc.

  • Stress relief steel parts cold straightened or suspected of having residual tensile stresses (350º +/- 25º F – 3 hours).

  • Parts with tensile strength over 210 Ksi bake 24 hours within 4 hours after plating.
