The majority of products that are processed in our plating department are Silver Electro-Plated. Silver is the best conductor of electricity and our matte plating process provides many desirable properties for electrical applications such as excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance and solderability.
The majority of products which go through our silver line are rack plated although barrel plating is also available for suitable components. Parts are carefully hung on specially designed racks to ensure proper spacing and to maximize plating uniformity. Parts up to 12’ long such as bus bars can be silver electroplated in our rack system. The Electric Materials Company’s silver is 99.9% pure minimum.
