Copper Plated Electrical Contacts

Accurate Precision Plating is here to solve your plating needs, using the most efficient and economical method for your needs. Copper plating offers a great source of conductivity at a more economical price. Copper is often plated on top of a range of metal substrates, including steel, stainless steel alloys, aluminum, Inconel and copper alloys.

What does Copper Plating Provide?

Copper plating offers excellent electrical conductivity to electrical components. As a result it is widely used in the electrical and electronics industries. It is an inexpensive coating for products such as printed­ circuits, connectors and steel alloys. Copper plating is also a soft, ductile ideal for a decorative finish and products that require slight flexibility, whiel also offering good solderability. It can also be applied as an undercoat or strike between substrate and final deposit to cover substrate defects such as holes and splinters. When used as an undercoat, copper plating also provides nickel or aluminum products with good corrosion resistance.

Copper plating thickness is measured on actual articles a non-destructive testing in accordance with ASTM B 568. Our precise plating thickness is capable of accomplishing a close tolerance of +I- .000025" {25 micro inches). Using Fisherscope X-Ray equipment, we can measure the copper thickness with a margin of error less than 1%. APP meets industry and regulatory standards, including AMS 2418 which replaces copper plating per Mll-C-14550. All our processes are certified to ISO 9001:2008.
