Cadmium Plating

Cadmium plating is a plating process that is used extensively in the aerospace industry due to its corrosion resistance in extreme and harsh environments inclduing salt atmospheres.  Despite a thin plating, cadmium plating offers a diverse set of benefits that include strength,malleability, and softness concurrently.  It serves as an excellent base for prime and paint, something that is lacked in gold plating processes. Further, cadmium galvanic properties are highly compatible with aluminum.
