The thesis problem that will be discussed in this report is an investiga­tion of a method of plating a coating of indium upon magnesium and magnesium alloys. The method used to accomplish the final results is the immersion pro­cess. It can be defined as the process of coating a metal with a second metal by immersing the first in a solution containing ions of the second.
