Cadmium coating and plating offers a long list of technical advantages such as excellent corrosion resistance in salt atmospheres (even at relatively low thickness), softness and malleability and freedom from sticky and/or bulky corrosion products. Cadmium coating also provides galvanic compatibility with aluminum, freedom from stick-slip, allowing reliable torquing of plated threads. Yellow, olive drab and clear cadmium plating are all color options for INCERTEC customers.    

Cadmium plating offers good lubricity and solderability and works well either as a final finish or as a paint base. If environmental concerns matter, in most aspects, yellow, olive drab, or clear cadmium plating can be directly replaced with gold plating as it shares most of the material properties, but gold is more expensive and cannot serve as a paint base.
