Colored stainless steel sheets use a electrolytic principle to apply a thin layer of other metals or alloys to certain metal surfaces. 

During electroplating, the plated metal acts as an anode and is oxidized to form a cation into the plating solution; the metal product to be plated serves as a cathode, and the cation of the plated metal is reduced on the metal surface to form a plating layer. 

In order to eliminate the interference of other cations and make the plating layer uniform and firm, it is necessary to use a solution containing a plating metal cation as a plating solution to keep the concentration of the metal cation of the plating layer unchanged. The purpose of electroplating is to deposit a metal deposit on the substrate to change the surface properties or size of the substrate. 

Electroplating can enhance the corrosion resistance of the metal (the corrosion of the coated metal is more), increase the hardness, prevent wear and improve Electrical conductivity, lubricity, heat resistance, and aesthetic appearance.
