Cadmium Plating

Cadmium plating provides excellent corrosion resistance, lubricity, electrical resistivity, and solder ability. Cadmium plating is a sacrificial protection mechanism because it is anodic to steel in galvanic activity. Cadmium coatings are particularly useful in the electrical, electronic, aerospace, mining, offshore, and automotive industries where they are applied to bolts and other fasteners, chassis, connectors and other components.
