Electroplating is a process that is used to coat a metal surface with a thin layer of another metal. This process is done by passing an electric current through a solution that contains dissolved metal ions. These ions are attracted to the surface of the object being electroplated, and they bond to form a thin, uniform layer of metal.
One of the most popular types of electroplating is gold electroplating. Gold electroplating is used to coat a variety of household objects, including jewellery, watches and other decorative items.
