Silver plating (electroplating) - Silver per QQ-S-365C
For your Silver plating requirements, Professional Plating, Inc. has facilities for silver plating both small and large parts in various sized barrels, racks and wiring.
Silver plating offers the highest electrical conductivity of all metals. It is not a precious metal and will oxidize rapidly. Silver plating is best suited for engineering purposes for solderable surfaces, electrical contact characteristics, high electrical and thermal conductivity, thermocompression bonding, wear resistance of load-bearing surfaces, and spectral reflectivity electrical applications, good corrosion resistance, good solderability, and other applications.
