Electrodeposited tin is resistant to both corrosion and tarnishing. Tin also provides a highly conductive, eminently solderable, uniformly thick coating, which makes it an excellent choice for electrical components and bus bar. It is a cost effective alternative to silver plating. We offer both bright and matte tin.
Nickel plating provides a strong, anti-corrosive barrier for parts made of more corrosive metals. We specialize in coating nickel over aluminum, copper, brass, and steel. Nickel plating provides excellent protection against wear and abrasion, as well as corrosion.
We offer superior-quality silver plating that ensures easy maintenance and longevity. Silver plating provides the critical benefits of solderability, lubricity, and electric conductivity that are essential to many high-tech applications. It is often considered a less expensive alternative to gold plating.
We have cyanide copper plating baths that provide an underlayer for other coatings, where it improves the adhesion of the final deposit and the corrosion resistance of the overall coating. Copper plating is solderable and can act as a heat treatment stopoff. We can also offer copper plating, with the addition of brighteners, as a final coating.
B & B offers both rack and barrel plating. Rack plating prevents damage to external threads and maintains strict tolerances. Parts with surfaces that need to be precise should be rack plated. Our racks are custom designed with the parameters of the customer’s part in mind; this protocol ensures a consistent, undamaged, quality product.
Barrel plating is used to plate small parts that will not be damaged when tumbled. It is far more economically efficient than rack plating, but conforms to the same high-quality standards.
When it does not make economical sense to manufacture parts from new material, we can work with our customers to refinish used parts. Refurbishing services, such as stripping and media blasting, are available.
B & B offers plated or unplated aluminum and copper bus bars. Our 13’ plating tanks easily accommodate mill length bar. We have the warehouse space to stock bar for large capacity users, and we can ship to you upon your release of the material.
We have recently designed, manufactured, and introduced, a new, high-capacity, flash silver plating line for copper bus bar and rod. Our flash silver plated copper bus bars are widely recognized for their quality. Our plated bar ensures greater electrical conductivity and better resistance to corrosion, and is used for heavy electrical requirements in numerous industries.
