Electroplating is the process of using an electrical direct current to coat an electrically conductive object with a thin layer of metal. EPi offers a variety of high-quality electroplating processes that are ideal for all types of metal finishers.
EPi has been a consistent leader in the electroplating industry, developing and perfecting its products for more than 60 years.
In 1954, EPi created the E-Brite 23-11, a single-additive cyanide copper process, and in 1961, it continued pioneering the single-additive nickel-plating process with the E-Brite 717. The company was the first to develop a production-proven, non-cyanide, non-pyrophosphate alkaline copper electroplating process, the E-Brite 30/30.
The E-Brite 205-K was developed as an ultra-bright and leveling acid copper-plating process. It produces exceptionally fast, bright, and ductile deposits with low internal stress, which is necessary for successful plating on plastics.
The latest innovation, the E-Brite 5.0 Cu, is our fifth-generation alkaline non-cyanide copper process.
