Electronic plating is the plating technology used for electronic components, which is an important part of the manufacturing process of electronic products and reflects the technology level of electronic manufacturing industry to a large extent. Electronic plating technology is one of the indispensable key technologies in modern microelectronics manufacturing. From Damascus copper interconnect plating technology on chips, plating surface treatment of lead frames to various functional plating of printed wiring boards and connectors, electronic plating has penetrated into the entire microelectronics industry. For many years, Alfa Chemistry has provided effective plating solutions that are widely used throughout the electronics industry.
Advantages of electronics plating processes
The plating process offers many advantages for the electronics field. The main advantages are described below.
- Improving corrosion resistance
- Enhancing electrical conductivity
- Protecting against wear
- Increasing the solderability of the substrate
Commonly used plating metals in the electronics field and their properties
One of the most important processes in the manufacture of electronic components is electroplating, which involves the application of a metal coating via electrodeposition. Due to the delicate nature of many electronic components, it is important to select the right metal for plating. The commonly used plating metals in electronic components and their properties are described below.
Nickel Plating: It provides excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance, and acts as an effective barrier layer.
Copper plating: It is much cheaper than precious metals and offers good electrical and thermal conductivity.
Tin plating: It provides excellent solderability and good corrosion resistance.
Tin alloys: It provides the properties associated with tin without the problematic "tin whisker" protrusion.
Plastic plating: It saves metal materials, simplifies the processing process, reduces equipment weight and improves the appearance of parts.
With the development of modern industry and science and technology, people have put forward higher and higher requirements for the performance of electronic products. Electroplating as a large series of surface treatment technology for electronic products will certainly develop rapidly.
