Available in strip
Pre-plated strip is produced by applying a thin layer of material onto the surface of another; less costly metal, commonly mild and stainless steels. This can provide a decorative surface finish whilst reducing the cost of the material, making it ideal for a number of applications, including interior decorative features such as handrails, light fittings, fireplaces, curtain poles and finials, jewellery design and automotive parts. There are further benefits including improving corrosion resistance, solderability, wearability, paint adhesion, infrared reflectivity, friction reduction and altering the conductivity, depending on the combination of materials chosen. Cost reduction has made plated products an increasingly popular choice.
Plated Strip Electrical Applications
There is a growing use of plated strip steel in electrical applications – driven by increasing metal prices of the traditional non-ferrous materials used by the electrical industry.
Typical applications include…
