Rhodium Plating

Electroplating Rhodium For Advanced Manufacturers

A key advantage of selecting rhodium for electroplating is its excellent electrical conductivity. In addition, its resistance to heat, wear, and corrosion make Rhodium plating an ideal choice. Rhodium electroplating also helps to reduce costs - especially when compared to using rhodium for the entire construction of a part.

Rhodium Electroplating

Rhodium is a very rare, highly durable, reflective metal with a higher melting point than Platinum. Due to its rarity, Rhodium is one of the most expensive precious metals to electroplate with, however the unique benefits it provides the substrate validate the cost.
