Brush Electroplating

Brush plating is used to build metal on areas where damage and abrasion have worn down a selective surface. Typically, one of two replacement alloys is applied via electroplating: nickel sulfate or nickel sulfamate. The surface is then precision-ground to match tolerances. The finished plated and ground surface have:

  • Excellent adhesion
  • Denser structure than original with no voids
  • Final hardness of approximately 52 RC (can be varied to suit your application)
  • Corrosion-resistant, ductile surface

Featured Case Study:

UPM Blandin
The Problem - In 1989, Blandin started up their #6 paper machine line with two modern super calenders. Over time, barring created a wear pattern, leaving an impression on the finished sheets. At one point, the mill had to change chilled iron rolls every six weeks. The resulting downtime greatly affected productivity.
