Commercial and Industrial Cadmium Plating

Available in Chicago, IL

Cadmium is an attractive, soft white metal that often serves as a “sacrificial coating”. One of few deposits that serve this purpose will corrode before the substrate material is plated, protecting it.

When used to plate one of several base materials, it is a cost-effective solution that offers consistent, reliable coverage. Common base materials include:

  • Steels
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Powdered metal
  • Various types of iron

Cadmium plating has a natural lubricity, which provides anti-galling and low friction, and our baking processes prevent the occurrence of hydrogen embrittlement. Additionally, we can enhance the corrosion protection cadmium plating provides by applying a chromate conversion coating with a clear, gold, olive drab, or black finish.
