Definition: production or reproduction of an article by electrodeposition upon a mandrel or former or mould that is subsequently separated from the deposit

Note 1 to entry: A resin or other matrix is made conductive by electroless plating, and it is used as a cathode to electrodeposit a desired metal thickly and rapidly. The product is obtained by releasing the metal from the matrix. The electroforming method is used in the manufacture of stampers for compact discs and laser discs because the shape and surface roughness of the matrix is precisely replicated.
