Cadmium Processing Specifications & Plating Process

Cadmium is a soft metal that can be electrodeposited on ferrous substrates primarily for corrosion resistance. It is frequently chromated and used as a base for paint to give maximum protection to aircraft and ordinance parts. Deposits are generally less than .001” thick but will vary with each application.

Advantages of Cadmium Plating

Cadmium plating offers multiple benefits, including corrosion resistance, galling prevention, and ductility. DCPI provides Low Hydrogen Embrittlement Cadmium (LHE), Vacuum Cadmium (Vac Cad), and Brush Cadmium (Brush Cad) plating processes.
