The effect of polyethylene glycol (PEG) was observed on the quality of trivalent chromium electroplating. The thickness and the current efficiency of the Cr3⁺ deposit were decreased with increasing the concentration of PEG, whereas the optical reflectivity and the corrosion resistivity increased. At the higher concentration of PEG (0.3 g/L), the best quality electrodeposition was observed.

Keywords :

Trivalent chromium electroplating; polyethylene glycol; corrosion; optical reflectivity.
