Cadmium Plating

Cadmium plating offers advantages such as excellent corrosion resistance even at relatively low thickness and in salt atmospheres. It also features galvanic compatibility with aluminum and freedom from stick-slip, thus allowing reliable torquing of plated threads. Cadmium plating can be dyed to many colors and clear, has good lubricity and solderability, and works well either as a final finish or as a paint base.

Hi-Tech Metal Finishing offers these approved cadmium plating processes for these original equipment manufacturers.
