The plating industry includes a wide variety of surface-preparation applications found in the manufacturing sector.

The metals involved in the plating industry can include zinc, tin, lead, cadmium, copper, nickel and other metals currently regulated by the USEPA and the Clean Water Act. In addition, the manufacturing configurations employed by platers have a significant impact on the wastewater challenges presented to the company. A barrel plater may have different challenges than a rack plater, or a coil coater. A variety of substrates are found in this industry, whether it be steel, galvanneal, aluminum, or even plastics. But all types of platers have one thing in common - a need to consistently meet wastewater discharge compliance regulations and to operate as efficiently as possible.
