  • Here is a fairly common question as answered by our Tech Team:

    Question: “What equipment is needed to use the indium sulfamate plating bath, e.g. electrodes, power supplies, cleaning equipment, etc?”

    Answer: “You will need plating tanks, a D.C. rectifier, anode bars, and indium anodes. In general one tank is used for each of the following operations: alkaline clean, [second] rinse, chemical activate, rinse, indium plate, [and final] rinse. There are several textbooks that describe the electroplating process in detail.”
