Are you looking for Cadmium Plating services in Erie, PA, or the surrounding areas? Keystone Corporation is here to help with all of your finishing and plating needs. Cadmium plating is a coating process that offers outstanding corrosion protection in low-thickness and high-salt enviromnents. It has been around since the 1920's, and is actually made of a biproduct from zinc production. Cadmium is a very attractive, soft white metal that can be deposited on various base materials, including steels, aluminum, copper, powdered metal, and various types of iron. Cadmium functions as a "sacrificial coating," corroding before the substrate material, making it one of the only metals to do that. Cadmium plating also provides anti-galling and low friction properties. In order to enhance the corrosion protection of cadmium plating, chromate conversion coatings can be applied over the cadmium, yielding clear, gold, olive drab, and black finishes.


What Applications are Cadmium Plating Used For?

Cadmium plating is used in a variety of automotive, aerospace, military, electrical, and consumer product applications. It is a coating that exhibits reliable, consistent coverage and is cost-effective. The thickness of the cadmium can be adjusted to meet the needs of your project, big or small.
