Electroplating Services

At California Electroplating, Inc., we offer high-caliber electroplating services to improve the appearance and performance characteristics of your components and assemblies. Our large, modern facility houses a state-of-the-art automatic plating line as well as a semi-automatic line for customized finishes. We have a strong history in the plating industry that goes back almost 100 years, and have continually refined and evolved our electroplating processes to meet 21st century quality standards.

Electroplating serves both practical and aesthetic purposes when applied to zinc die cast, steel, brass, and aluminum substrates. We engineer our bath chemistries and production processes to provide a high degree of flexibility. Our computer controlled processing line features real-time monitoring to ensure uniform coverage and consistent quality over the entire production run. Prior to plating, we can provide graining and polishing to enhance texture and appearance.

Our nickel plating is available in Satin, Bright, and Duplex finishes. Our chrome plating is available in both trivalent and hexavalent chrome. Both nickel and chrome plating provide excellent corrosion and wear protection and prolong the life of components used in a variety of industrial and consumer applications. Copper plating covers base metals smoothly with a uniform thickness, making it suitable as an undercoat, especially on die cast zinc. We also offer hard, durable black chrome finishes with a shiny or matte appearance. Plated finishes can also be used in combination with each other to achieve a specific look or set of performance properties.

Our friendly, experienced, and professionally trained staff is available to assist you with all aspects of your project and manage your needs with the utmost care. We have the capacity to manage jobs of any size, and are especially proficient with high volume orders that need a rapid turnaround. Our facility is fully permitted by local, state, and federal authorities and our processes are qualified according to a number of industry standards.

Serving the needs of clients in a range of industrial, commercial, consumer markets, we are agile, efficient, and committed to providing 100% customer satisfaction. Contact us today to learn more about our electroplating capabilities or for a quote on your next project.
