Applications

The SIFCO Process® is a portable method of electroplating localized areas without the use of an immersion tank. SIFCO ASC deposits have excellent adhesion and can be plated at rates that are 30 to 60 times faster than tank plating to repair damage from wear, corrosion, or mis-machining. The SIFCO Process® deposits offer wear resistance, low electrical contact resistance, or corrosion protection. Numerous pure metals, alloys and applications are available using the selective plating process. Our equipment is portable, enabling technicians to plate parts in-situ, saving companies money and minimizing downtime.
