ELECTROPLATING

Electroplating is also known as electrodeposition. As the name suggests, the process involves depositing material using an electric current. This process results in a thin layer of metal being deposited onto the surface of a workpiece. Electroplating is primarily used to change the physical properties of an object. This process can be used to give objects increased wear resistance, corrosion protection or aesthetic appeal, as well as increased thickness.

Benefits:

  • Enhanced Durability: Protects against corrosion and wear.

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Offers a shiny, smooth finish in various metals.

  • Customization: Tailored thickness and metal types for diverse applications.

HOW IT'S DONE

When the gold or other metal plating solution is "brushed" onto the item, the electrical circuit is completed and the metal bonds to the item in the area you brushing.

PATINATION

Patination is an art form that artificially ages metals, bringing out unique colors and textures that add character and depth. Our expert artisans apply various chemicals to the surface of metals such as bronze, copper, and brass to achieve spectacular color transformations. This process is perfect for artistic installations, architectural elements, and any project where a distinctive, aged look is desired.
