QQ-P-416 Cadmium Plating

QQ-P-416 Cadmium Plating in Buffalo, NYCadmium plating prevents oxidation therefore extending the life of base metals by resisting rust and degradation. Cadmium has a low coefficient of friction and provides excellent lubricity, smooth solder ability, protection from galvanic corrosion, reliable torque characteristics, and good electrical conductivity.

Cadmium plating thickness can be adjusted to meet the needs of your project, large or small. Our baking process prevents the occurrence of hydrogen embrittlement, while our electrodeposited method improves the bonding of paint and adhesion. This offers an attractive final finish or allowing for the application of sealants or chromates over the cadmium finish. 

We offer four chromate color choices:

  • Clear
  • Yellow
  • Black
  • Olive Drab
