Those who often drop their phones can relate; smartphones are delicate, and once you crack the phone, little shards of glass will start to fall out. Over time, it feels like your phone is dissolving right in your hands. Putting a case on your phone should be the first thing you do as soon as you take it out of the box. While some cases sold by retailers are, in fact, electroplated, some are plastic. If your case happens to be plastic or even a more malleable metal like stainless steel, there is an opportunity to utilize electroplating capacities in order to protect your phone, make it look even more appealing, and make it last longer. Here’s why an electroplated phone case lasts longer.
Electroplated Phone Case
An electroplated phone case will provide excellent durability and will protect the most expensive parts from damage, corrosion, and denting or cracking. A phone case made of lesser material like plastic or stainless steel will show wear and tear faster and could fail at protecting your phone if you drop it. Electroplating basically deposits a thin layer of strong metal over the substrate, here being the phone case. Having a harder protective layer on your phone will make it look newer for longer while protecting your smartphone.
Electroplating can be done over these materials:
- Stainless steel
An electroplated phone case will feature an extra layer of metal over a weaker material, making it look like new again. The process is done by electrodeposition and uses an electrochemical process to deposit the thin layer of new metal.
