Gold plating – one of the most important nobel metal coatings in the electronics industry
Gold (Au) is one of the most important precious noble coatings in the electronics industry. Gold plating significantly improves the corrosion resistance of components. The gold coating prevents the piece from oxidizing, so that, for example, the solderability and electrical conductivity of the connectors remain better. Gold coating is used e.g. in measuring devices of different technologies due to gold’s excellent infrared reflectivity.
Gold plating can be done directly on most electrically conductive materials.
