Bus Bar Plating
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:Nickel plating is ideal for harsh environments
