Bus Bar Plating with Nickel, Silver or Tin

Certain applications require plating in order to minimize oxidation. Protective coatings also allow the product to have a good contact surface, maintaining low resistant contact when attached.

Depending on the environment in which the part is located, plating can be:


Tin – specifically bright acid tin – is generally the most ubiquitous, based on its professional look and feel, prevention of oxidation & low resistivity. Additionally, tin is the most economical while still providing a high quality product. Tin is the most common plating option; however, other choices are available.


Silver is best for conductivity


Nickel plating is ideal for harsh environments

Client Testimony

“I found EMS Industrial & Service Company on the internet while searching for a company to make custom bus bar pieces. Our company had a project that required copper bus pieces for the power interconnection of electrical equipment. The size, shape, and the position of holes in the bus pieces had to be exact. EMS was very helpful in pointing out all the dimensions that they needed to make the pieces I needed. I had deadlines that I had to meet to make the project a success.
