Cadmium Electroplating is a sacrificial coating that will corrode prior to the base material. Very commonly used in highly corrosive areas and also has a lubricity characteristic. Cadmium is a byproduct of the production of zinc. Commonly used in the aerospace industry and in applications that require disassembling and reassembling. By applying chromate treatments to cadmium will improve corrosion resistance greatly.
Sav-on Plating is capable of processing both Barrel and Rack Cadmium plating to a variety of specifications.
