Precious metals plating: industrial applications and manufacturing aspects Summary Because of their unique properties, precious metals have become an integral part of daily life. Their resistance to corrosion and good malleability make them useful not only for jewelry, but also for a wide variety of other industries and products. Whether as sensors in the steel industry, catalysts for satellite thrusters or chemical processes, contact materials in the electronics and automotive industries, or in glass coatings, most industrial products contain precious metals. This seminar has been aimed to present a broader insight about different aspects of precious metals plating including: the most practical applications and recent innovations in precious metals plating, introducing of well-known European industries and distributors, electroplating plants and required analysis, recycling and environmental issues. Last but not least, in this seminar has been intended to present some innovative ideas and project concepts regarding to the field of precious metals plating.
