copper: 3-12µm; silver: 3-6µm
Silver coatings are widely used in electrical engineering and electronics, in the jewellery and furniture industries, and wherever aesthetics play an important role.
- high chemical and corrosion resistance through passivation
- excellent electrical and thermal conductance, as well as contact conductivity
- high reflectivity
