Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19716493A1] The invention relates to a method for electroplating metallic and non-metallic endless products with metals or alloys by means of a continuous process using aprotic electrolytes free of water and oxygen. Said method is characterized in that the endless product is directed via a lock system (1) into a shielded electroplating installation placed under an inert-gas atmosphere, where the following steps are carried out at temperatures </=120 DEG C: activating the endless product to be electroplated; rinsing the endless product to be electroplated; contacting the endless product to be electroplated; electroplating the endless product to be electroplated with metal or a metal alloy; drying the electroplated endless product; and delivering the electroplated endless product from the installation via a lock system. The invention also relates to a device for carrying out this method.
