We offer numerous pure metals and alloy solutions that can be electroplated onto virtually all common metals and alloys used in industry today, including nickel plating and copper plating.

What is Selective Plating?

The SIFCO Process® is a selective, brush, plating method of applying metal deposits to localized areas without using an immersion tank. The portable process enables you to plate stationary parts that are either difficult to move or disassemble.
