Selective plating is used in many places, varying from industrial applications up to decoration purposes. Here some samples.

1.    Oil and gas industry, copper and zinc plating of boxthreads.

2.    Graphic industry, repairs of chromium cylinders of a printing press.

3.    Metal industry, repairs of process failures.

4.    Hydraulics, repair of damaged cylinders.
