We have both rack and barrel capabilities, including vibratory barrel technology in our precious metal department line. Process control is supervised by our wet chem lab. We utilize scheduled sampling and analysis of the aqueous processes, along with Hull cell testing and SPC data processing. All our plating processes are proprietary, giving us the benefit of our vendors´expertise.

Tin and Solder Plating
We specialize in fusing the tin or solder by reflowing the electroplated deposit in hot oil. We have extensive experience and considerable expertise in fusing these deposits on aluminum parts and other substrates. Fused tin precludes whisker growth and renders superior solderability and shelf life. We are experienced in high volume production and have 12 foot tin plating tanks.

    • Matte or bright tin
    • 90/10 tin-lead, bright or matte
    • 60/40 tin-lead, bright or matte

Gold and Silver Plating, Electrodeposited

    • Nickel hardened gold meets MIL-G-45204, Type I and II, Grade C requirements.
    • Pure Gold meets MIL-G-45204, Type III. Grade A requirements.
    • Silver deposits Include Type I, II and III per QQ-S-365

Electrolytic Nickel Sulfamate and Sulfate
For corrosion protection and cosmetic considerations, we plate bright nickel from a sulfate bath.  For engineering applications we plate semi-bright, or stress free matte nickel from a sulfamate bath. Sulfamate nickel can also be used as an excellent migration barrier between undercoating and the finish. We also have nickel chloride bath for initial plating that assures adhesion of the deposit to stainless steel.

Electrolytic Copper
Associated Plating plates copper as either undercoating or finish per MIL-C-14550.
