Rack Electroplating

Customers needing rack plating services where plating specifications are complex and the finished product must meet very stringent testing guidelines rely on the extensive electroplating services offered by Sharretts Plating Company. Specially built racks for ID and OD area dimensions for plating are available, resulting in improved deposit distribution, part tolerance integrity on threads that are used to apply corrosion resistance, and high-tech conductive and solderable/bondable functionality. Copper, nickel, electroless nickel phosphorous, palladium plating, palladium-nickel, silver plating, tin, tin-lead, tin-zinc, zinc plating services, zinc-nickel, soft and cobalt hardened gold (AU) electroplating comprise the SPC plating array.

Rhodium Electroplating Services Also Available

We also offer rhodium electroplating as part of our rack plating services. Rhodium is a somewhat rare, hard, silvery white metal that is part of the platinum family. Rhodium's highly luminescent and reflective qualities make rhodium electroplating a commonly used process in the manufacturing of white gold or platinum-based jewelry items.

Rhodium electroplating also improves a material's resistance to corrosion, enabling it to retain its brightness and improve its durability in many types of atmospheric conditions. It is important that all surface imperfections are removed prior to rhodium electroplating, as the process can actually make these defects show more clearly. Rhodium electroplating may also be used with silver or copper and their various alloys.

Our Own Rack Plating Equipment Provides Superior Results

To save customers money and guarantee predictable results, our industrial plating company designs and builds nearly all of its entire rack plating equipment. As a result, they can service very small or prototype volumes by wiring up a few parts to producing jobs requiring fool engineered racks for mass production.
