How to Make Metal Plating for Furniture Accessories?

At Regnum, we use metal coating technology to produce high quality furniture legs and accessories. This technology not only gives our products an aesthetic appearance but also increases their durability. We would like to share with you how the metal coating process works and the stages of this process.

1. Preparation and Cleaning

Surface Preparation: Before starting the metal coating process, the surface of the furniture accessories is carefully prepared. At this stage, it is ensured that there is no dirt, oil or rust residue on the surface of the accessories. Cleanliness is important for a smooth and homogeneous application of the coating.

Sanding: Sanding is applied to ensure a smooth surface. This process removes small imperfections on the surface and ensures better adhesion of the coating to the surface.

2. Basic Coating

Priming After cleaning and sanding, a primer is applied to the surface of the accessories. The primer is a base for better adhesion of the coating to the surface and increases the durability of the coating.

Electrostatic Coating: Electrostatic coating method is applied to the primed surface. In this method, the powdered coating material is adhered to the surface with electrostatic charge. Electrostatic coating provides a homogeneous and uniform coating.

3. Metal Coating

Coating Bath: The prepared accessories are immersed in a plating bath. In this bath, metal ions are deposited on the surface of the accessories. The metals used are usually precious metals such as nickel, chromium, copper or gold.

Coating Duration: The time the accessories remain in the bath is determined depending on the desired coating thickness. Coating time directly affects the durability and aesthetic appearance of the coating.

4. Drying and Polishing

Drying After the coating process is complete, the accessories are dried in drying ovens. This process ensures that the coating fully adheres to the surface and hardens.

Polishing: The dried accessories are polished in polishing machines. The polishing process ensures that the surface of the coating is shiny and smooth. It also increases the aesthetic appearance of the accessories.

5. Quality Control

Inspection and Testing: After the coating process is completed, the accessories undergo various quality control tests. These tests are carried out to check the durability, adhesion strength and aesthetic quality of the coating.

Final Control: After passing all the tests, the accessories undergo a final visual inspection. Any defects or errors are checked and corrections are made if necessary.

As Regnum, with the metal coating technology we use in furniture accessories, we both give our products an aesthetic appearance and increase their durability. You can visit our website to get more information about our products and contact us to use them in your projects.
