Platings > Plating on Titanium

Plating on Titanium

Titanium is a high-strength, lightweight, non-magnetic metal with a specific gravity between that of iron and aluminum.

Titanium has high corrosion resistance due to the formation of a stable oxide film on its surface, but its oxide film tends to have high contact resistance.
While titanium has excellent corrosion resistance, it is also susceptible to wear.
It is said that it is difficult to apply a plating film with good adhesion to titanium, but Mitsuya's plating technology on titanium can apply a plating film with good adhesion without heat treatment.

Various types of plating as well as precious metal plating are possible using a nickel base.
By applying copper or nickel-plating films, it is possible to add functions to the properties of titanium materials such as electrical conductivity and abrasion resistance.
Furthermore, since adhesion is secured without heat treatment, post-processing using an electric furnace after plating is not necessary.

Depending on the plating type, direct plating is also possible without nickel plating.
