Cadmium plating

Cadmium plating (or "cad plating") offers a long list of technical advantages such as excellent corrosion resistance even at relatively low thickness and in salt atmospheres, softness and malleability, freedom from sticky and/or bulky corrosion products, galvanic compatibility with aluminium, freedom from stick-slip thus allowing reliable torquing of plated threads, can be dyed to many colours and clear, has good lubricity and solderability, and works well either as a final finish or as a paint base.
