Why Cadmium Plate?

Cadmium plating is a soft metallic coating that can be deposited on various base materials such as steel, copper, iron, brass and aluminium.

It is prized for its corrosion resistance, lubricity, chemical resistance, ductility, and ease of solderability.

It acts as a ‘sacrificial coating’, meaning that it corrodes preferentially when applied over base metals.

These qualities make it the ideal coating in the industrial sector for everything from bolts and screws on submarines and aircraft to the oil and gas sector.

It also significantly outperforms other commonly used coatings for domestic applications, especially for vintage motorcycle and car restoration.
