Artistic Plating recently tripled the capacity of precision tin/lead and lead plating services due to recent growth in plating within the bearing, power distribution/transmission and energy sectors. “Our tin/lead and lead plating services were our number one growing finish in the previous year and the expansion of our capabilities in these finishes will greatly improve our ability to service these key sectors,” says company Sales Manager Matt Lindstedt.
Artistic Plating offers specific tin/lead and lead plating services including heavy build, selective plating and plate-to-gauge for demanding bearing plating applications. In addition, tin/lead and lead coating excel in applications involving batteries and highly corrosive applications that utilize strong mineral acids or other extremely corrosive environments. Current capabilities include plating up to 0.010” per side as well as multi-layer deposits with compositions to meet nearly any specification.
