For the automotive industry, pre-plating coil-stock is a cost-effective solution for the manufacture of electrical connectors and other plated components. To meet this need, Precious Plate offers wide-stock plating lines that can pre-plate tin, nickel, and other metals on coil-stock weighing up to 7,500 lbs (3,402 kg).
If required, material plated with pure tin can be run through a tin reflow process to reduce the risk of tin whisker formation. Once the coil-stock is plated, manufacturers of automotive electrical connectors and other plated components can cost-effectively stamp parts as needed from the pre-plated coil-stock.
