Electroplated cadmium is a robust and versatile metallic coating. Cadmium is a soft white metal that, when plated onto steel, cast iron, malleable iron, copper, and powdered metal, functions as a “sacrificial coating,” corroding before the substrate material. The 5-20 Mesh size offers increased surface area for plating.

Forms:
  • 5-20 Mesh
