   Anodizing       Anodizing aluminum alloys employ electrolytic oxidation of the aluminum surface to produce a protective oxide coating. Anodizing is a type of electrolytic passivation. An anodic coating consists of hydrated aluminum oxide, which is considered resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Conventional coatings are 0.1-to-1.0 mil thick and are mostly transparent, but may be colored.  Anodizing preserves the natural luster and texture of the metal. An anodized coating is hard, durable, will never peel, and under normal conditions, will never wear through.  Hard coat anodizing, hard anodizing, or engineered anodizing produces a thicker oxide layer compared to conventional anodizing. While aluminum is the most commonly anodized metal, anodizing chemicals are also available for zinc, titanium, magnesium, niobium, and tantalum. Chemicals used in the process are typically for pretreatment, process modification, and post treatment. These include: anodizing bath electrolytes (Type I chromic acid, Type II & III sulfuric acid or organic acids, phosphoric acid, borate, tartrate), cleaners, etchants, burn preventers, anodizing accelerators, fume suppressants, deoxidizers, desmutters, anodizing additives, dyes or colorants, and surface sealers. 
   Brass Plating       Applying a brass surface to another material. 
   Cadmium Plating       Applying a cadmium surface to another material. 
   Chrome Plating - Decorative       Applying a chrome surface to another material. 
   Chrome Plating - Hard       Chrome platings or electrodeposits are formed or applied to provide a higher hardness or abrasion resistance relative to the substrate, or compared to other similar coatings. The higher hardness or wear resistance is attained through process and/or compositional changes. 
   Copper Plating       Applying a copper surface to another material. 
   Gold Plating       Applying a gold surface to another material. Gold is the most ductile of all metals. It is one of three precious metals, along with silver and platinum. 
   Nickel Plating - Decorative       Applying a nickel surface to another material. 
   Nickel Plating - Hard       Nickel platings or electrodeposits are formed or applied to provide a higher hardness or abrasion resistance relative to the substrate, or compared to other similar coatings or finishes. The higher hardness or wear resistance is attained through process and/or compositional changes. 
   Platinum Plating       Platinum is a dense (heavy), hard, silvery metallic element. It is one of three precious metals, along with gold and silver. 
   Rhodium Plating       Applying a rhodium surface to another material. 
   Silver Plating       Applying a silver surface to another material. Silver is one of three precious metals, along with gold and platinum. 
   Tin Plating       Applying a tin surface to another material. (Not titanium nitride, see coatings section) 
   Tin-lead Plating       Tin-lead plating is an electroless plating process commonly used on circuit boards where exposed areas of copper are coated with a layer of tin-lead alloy. The tin-lead alloy provides protection from contamination and prevents the copper from oxidizing. 
   Titanium Plating       Applying a titanium metal surface to another material.  (Not titanium nitride, see coatings section) 
   Zinc Plating       Applying a zinc surface to another material. Zinc dichromate plating is electroplating with zinc, followed by dipping in a chromate conversion coating to discourage and delay the white rusting of the zinc. May also be referred to as gold iridite. 
   Other       Other, unlisted plating. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Electroless?       Electroless plating does not require a DC power supply to plate a surface. The plated metal is deposited from a specialized metal salt solution. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   High Purity?       Plated or coated metal layer consists of a soft, high-purity alloy. Soft gold or silver coatings provide lower electrical contact resistance, which can be important in electrical and electronic applications.  
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
