QQ-P-416 Cadmium Plating

QQ-P-416 Cadmium Plating in Buffalo, NYQQ-P-416 cadmium plating is an attractive coating that can be set over various metals, helping to prevent oxidation, therefore extending the life of base metals by resisting rust and degradation. Cadmium has a low coefficient of friction, and this natural lubricity helps to provide smooth solder ability, protection from galvanic corrosion, reliable torque characteristics, and good electrical conductivity.

QQ-P-416 cadmium plating is further beneficial in that it's thickness can be adjusted, so no matter your specific needs, we can make sure that you have exactly what you need. The Keystone Corporation 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.
