Plating Services

Plating Services

In addition to electroplating of the tungsten and molybdenum wire that we re-draw ourselves, we also offer custom plating service for several other types of substrate metal wire.

The plating material that we currently work with is:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Nickel

Our plating technology will provide oxidation resistance and improved wettability for soldering.We have multiple lines available for reel to reel plating and our speciality is high quality electro plating of thin wire sizes. Typical coat thicknesses are within the range of 0.1 – 3µm, meaning 4 – 118µinches.

Any type of substrate wire will be considered and our technical team will co-operate with you to ensure that the coating will have the most appropriate characteristics for your application. Below you will find some specific materials and the corresponding available wire dimension.
