Silver Plating

Silver plating is a surface treatment that, due to the excellent technical properties of silver, can be applied to a broad range of products. Advantages of Silver Electroplating: Superior Fatigue Resistance, Provides Dry Lubricity, Corrosion Resistance, Thermal Conductivity, Electro Magnetic Shielding, Offers Malleability, Reduces Friction, Facilitates Joining of Materials, High Tensile Strength, High Ductility, Algaecidal – Bactericidal – Antibacterial , Advantageous Alloying and, Wetting Properties, Efficient Catalyst , Resists Oxidation.Total silver fabrication demand, led by surging industrial demand, rose to its highest level in 2005 since 2001. Total silver fabrication rose by 3 percent in 2005, to 864.4 million ounces, its highest total since 2001.
