Metal finishing and protection:

Silver plating and combination of silver and gold plating

Silver plating is used mostly as decorative plating. It is less used for industrial purposes, for which the nickel and chrome plating are more used because of their hardness and resiliency (comparing to silver) and the effect (the color) is mostly the same with slight differences.

About Galvanotechnics, the electroplating method

Galvanotechnics or electroplating is the application of a metal coating to a metallic or other conducting surface by an electrochemical process. It is a method in which the metals of lesser value are coated with a thin layer of a more valuable metal (gold plating, copper plating, nickel plating, chrome plating, etc). This method is efficient on metals that do not have a natural protection like aluminum, zinc, lead or other alloys that partly consist of these metals. The process of coating may differentiate depending on the original material, so sometimes interlayers are used to compensate the compatibility or conductivity between the original material and the finishing coating.
