INCERTEC is a trusted supplier in the military and defense industries, providing mil-spec coatings and plating for applications where function and performance are paramount and corrosion resistance is required. We provide a wide range of plating for mil-spec connectors for both aircraft and land installations, including electronic connectors and wiring for communications.

INCERTEC facilities in Fridley, Minnesota and Empalme, Mexico are Nadcap certified for chemical processing, assuring customers that our work lives up to the toughest industry standards. Both plants offer cadmium and more environmentally-friendly cadmium alternative plating such as electroless nickel.

Our proven track record in traceability is another reason military and defense customers trust their projects to INCERTEC. Our state-of-the-art barcode tracking system enables us to trace the production of parts throughout processing, including the chemistry used. We store records up to ten years electronically, so if you ever need to determine the origin of an issue, we’re able to help.
