Schlötter has always been to the forefront in the development of copper plating solutions which have been modified over the years to cater for the ever increasing demands which have come particularly from the PCB and electronics industries. Due to the unique characteristics which include good electrical and thermal conductivity, excellent throwing power, low hardness and bright ductile deposits copper is used universally in electroplating technology. Copper coatings are also used as intermediate layers to improve corrosion resistance and adhesion before nickel, silver, tin and chrome plating. Schlötter’s portfolio includes bright copper systems for plastic and decorative applications as well as BV and TH filling and superfilling processes for the PCB and electronics industry.
