BIO ACCUMULATION FACTORS
Tumbling parts with hardened, highly polished steel balls or other shaped media in a chemical cleaning solution.
It is especially used to polish softer and malleable metals. Burnishing is sometimes used to improve the final luster.
A bar chart is a graphic representation which compares quantities by means of rectangles ( bars )
of uniform widths and of lengths proportional to the number being represented. ars make it easy
to recognize small differences in quantities or frequencies, and compare one category with another.
Easy to construct.

Any chemical solution; the plating bath is an ELECTROLYTE because current can passed through it;
( also see 'ELOECTROLYTE' ).

The practice of setting operating targets for a particular function by selecting the top
performance levels, either within or outside a company's own industry. In a broader
sense, benchmarking involves searching around the world for new ideas and practices
for the improvement of processes, products, and services.

An alloy consisting of copper and zinc. Yellow brass contains 70% copper and 30% zinc. Red brass contains 80% copper and 20% zinc.
A chemical added to a plating bath to brighten and improve other deposit characteristics.
BRIGHT PLATING RANGE
The current density range in which a plating solution produces acceptably bright deposit.
An alloy consisting of copper and tin.
Tumbling parts to be polished with each other or with glazed beads, soap and a burnishing compound.
It contains soap and other buffering chemicals to prevent tarnishing. It maintains a specific range of pH in operation.
A rough, non-coherent deposit produced by plating at high current density. This deposit usually contains oxides or other inclusions.
