Electrolyte plasma processing is environment-friendly and high-effective method to treat surfaces of metals and alloys and can be used for heat or thermochemical treatment as well as for cleaning or polishing of metal surfaces. Modes of processes in the electrolytic cell for different metals can partially overlap. So it is possible to perform the same or different processing for different metals (including components of bimetal) simultaneously. This article describes modes to be established at the active electrode during the anodic process, and application of these modes to various types of treatment of bimetals. It is shown that there exists an option of separate or simultaneous heat or thermochemical treatment, as well as polishing of one or both surfaces of bimetals.
