Valence is the industry leader in quality for precision components in the aerospace, satellite and electronics / medical device industries. With unique selective plating and precision masking techniques for critical plated components, we are the leading plater for satellite and UAV applications, including a proprietary process for precision internal plating of waveguides.
We offer integrated honing and grinding capabilities to complement our cadmium and chrome plating.
Electroless Nickel Plating
Gold plating advantages include good corrosion resistance, good solderability, and, when alloyed with cobalt, it has very good wear resistance. Gold is commonly used in electrical switch contacts, connector pins and barrels, and other applications where intermittent electrical contact occurs. It is also used as a radiation shield, in infrared reflectors and satellite electronic housings. Valence also offers immersion gold plating.
Tin plating is used extensively to protect both ferrous and nonferrous surfaces. Tin is also widely used in the electronics industry because of its ability to protect the base metal from oxidation and corrosion. Depending on the base material, tin is used as a metal plating to maintain or impart solderability. Valence also offers tin lead plating.
