Application Note: Determination of Major Components and Trace Contaminants in Assorted Plating Baths by Atomic Absorption Analysis
13 January 2013

Precious metal, non-ferrous and ferrous plating operations cover almost every facet of modern life, such as electronic components, jewelry and bathroom fixtures. Good manufacturing practices, and lately, government regulations for environmental safety, have prompted many plating operations to perform more stringent tests on their products. This application note demonstrates the Buck 210 VGP AA as a versatile, flexible and substantially less expensive system for trace analysis.
