Electrochemistry of the SUCOPLATE® electroplating bath for the deposition of a Cu-Zn-Sn alloy - part I: commercial bath
The deposition of a Cu-Zn-Sn alloy from a commercial alkaline cyanide electroplating bath operated at 333 K has been investigated using voltammetric techniques and electron microscopy. It is shown that a highly reflecting alloy deposit with a composition in the range 47-51% copper, 8-12% zinc and 38-43% tin can be produced under a range of conditions. In addition, it is concluded that the rate of alloy deposition is partially limited by mass transport and partially by the kinetics of reactions in homogeneous solution.

Abstract

The deposition of a Cu-Zn-Sn alloy from a commercial alkaline cyanide electroplating bath operated at 333 K has been investigated using voltammetric techniques and electron microscopy. It is shown that a highly reflecting alloy deposit with a composition in the range 47-51% copper, 8-12% zinc and 38-43% tin can be produced under a range of conditions. In addition, it is concluded that the rate of alloy deposition is partially limited by mass transport and partially by the kinetics of reactions in homogeneous solution.
