Zinc Electroplating: Increase Corrosion Resistance in Metals
Zinc plating is mostly used in the automotive industry. One of the main reasons why zinc electroplating is preferred is because of its compatibility with any type of metal. Zinc also can produce a range of colours – right from its original silvery-gray finish to blue, yellow, and black. In addition to providing corrosion resistance and exceptional adhesion, zinc plating also gives a smooth finish to metal components.

Cadmium Plating: Extend the Life of Your Metal Components
Like zinc coating, cadmium electroplating provides a protective coating to the substrate metal to keep it from corrosion. Iron, steel, brass, and copper metal components often undergo the cadmium electroplating metal finishing process. Cadmium plating is mostly used in the aerospace industry and offers benefits such as low electrical resistance, better soldering and lubrication, and resistance to bacteria and mold, to name a few.
