Electroplating is a metal finishing process used to finish your part surface by submersing the part in a tank of chemicals and applying an electric current. Electroplating coats or alters the part surface with a thin layer. Larger parts are usually plated on racks where the parts are hung before submersing. Barrel plating is often used for small parts where the parts sit at the bottom of a tank.

Applications 

Electroplating can be used to prevent corrosion, increase mechanical durability, alter surface friction or improve appearance. Plating is often often used on parts made of AluminumCopper, Steel and Brass.

Properties 

Electroplating does not substantially hide or smooth surface imperfections. For example if you mill a part with 63 surface finish and then silver plate, it will not have a polished look. 

Examples

The process is often applied to decorative parts, sculptures, knobs, electrical connectors, handles, etc.
