What is Glass Plating？
Due to its fragility, a protective coating may be required on the glass substrate. Plating on the glass will metalize the surface, making it more durable. Electroplating also makes glass workpieces conductive, allowing for better compatibility with other metal finishing techniques. Glass is one of the most challenging materials to plate and often requires the application of various surface preparation techniques.
Electroplating is rapidly becoming the glass finishing technology of choice in the emerging biotechnology industry. The process typically requires electroless plating, which relies on autocatalytic reactions rather than electricity to apply the coating. The electronics industry also uses glass plating to make components such as high-frequency radio filters and interposers.
