Palladium-Cobalt Alloy Plating

sample of Palladium-Cobalt Alloy Plating

Palladium plating has attracted attention as an alternative coating to Gold plating.
It has corrosion resistance, lightfastness, wear resistance, good electric characteristic, bright characteristics and low contact resistance. Therefore, palladium plating is used for the electric, electronic and the semiconductor-related parts such as contacts and connectors.
Palladium cobalt alloy plating was developed for improving the disadvantages of palladium plating and adding a new functional property. Cobalt has an excellent magnetic property. So, the application to magnetic devices and magnetic storage media is expected. Features of Mitsuya's Palladium cobalt alloy plating are:
・Excellent glossiness
・Excellent corrosion resistance
・High hardness
・Excellent wear resistance
Hardness of this plating (15% Co) is Hv450~500 as-plated and Hv 650-700 after heat treatment.
