Plating is a process where one joins a metal covering to a conductive surface — is a centuries-old process that many people most commonly associate with machine parts or jewelry. Adding gold plating or silver plating to an item to make it appear more precious and attractive is an extremely common use for plating. However, there are many other uses — including corrosion inhibition, radiation shielding, paint adhesion and many more.
