Cadmium Plating

Cadmium plating is still frequently used in the aerospace industry for fasteners and it remains in military and aviation specs. Cadmium plating, also know as cad plating, offers a lot of technical advantages such as excellent resistance to corrosion even at relatively low thickness and in salt atmospheres, softness and malleability, freedom from sticky and/or bulky corrosion products, galvanic compatibility with aluminum, freedom from stick-slip thus allowing reliable torquing of plated threads, can be dyed to many colors and clear, has good lubricity and solderability, and works well either as a final finish or as a paint base.
