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....
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....
B & B offers both rack and barrel plating. 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. 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 co...
To plate metals with silver, including aluminum, brass, copper, and steel, a process called silver plating is used. Here's a summary of how each metal can be silver plated:
Aluminum: Silver plating aluminum is challenging due to poor adhesion. It involves cleaning the aluminum, applying a zincate layer, and then electroplating it with silver.
Brass: Brass is suitable for silver plating. The brass surface is cleaned, and the object is immersed in a silver plating bath with an electrical current, allowing silver ions to deposit on the brass.
Copper: Copper is an excellent candidate for silver plating. After cleaning, copper is electroplated with silver by immersing it in a silver plating bath with an electric current.
Steel: Silver plating steel is more complex due to corrosion susceptibility. It involves cleaning, applying an intermediate layer (usually nickel or copper), and then electroplating with silver.
Proper preparation and intermediate layers are essential for adhesion and durability in silver plating. Contact us today for more information.
We perform metal plating processes in accordance with specific standards and requirements set by customers, military organizations, and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). These standards outline the quality, materials, and performance criteria that must be met during the plating process to ensure that the final plated products meet certain specifications and quality standards.
BB Plating adhers to ISO 9001:2000, which is an international standard for quality management systems. Our compliance with ISO 9001:2000 indicates our company has established and maintains effective quality management practices to consistently meet customer requirements and provide high-quality products and services.
We also go above and beyond the minimum environmental standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when managing and treating waste generated during the plating process. We are committed to environmentally responsible practices and take additional measures to minimize the environmental impact of our operations.
