Platings

   SUCOPRO®

SUCOPRO plating consists of a thin layer of gold plating over a nickel-phosphorus underlayer. In addition to offering equivalent or better functionality than conventional gold plating, it also offers a major cost advantage, being significantly cheaper to produce on account of the different gold layer thicknesses. The impressive properties of Sucopro plating include exceptional wear resistance and solderability, good crimping suitability as well as low and stable contact resistance.  Sucopro datasheet


  
   SUCOPLATE®


Sucoplate consists of a copper-tin-zinc alloy and offers beneficial electrical properties, good corrosion protection and an attractive appearance. Hardness of 600 to 700 HV as well as good abrasion resistance and ductility prevent damage even under mechanical stress from friction or bending. Its high electrical conductivity and low coefficient of friction ensure good electrical contact. The non-magnetic alloy also offers low attenuation at high frequencies. Sucoplate datasheet 



   SUCODUR

Sucodur plating is an electrolytic nickel-phosphorus plating with a minimum 10.5% phosphorus content. It has similar physical properties to electroless nickel plating, offering good wear and corrosion resistance. Plate hardness is between 600 and 1000 HV. This plating is ideal for components requiring constant contact resistance and optimum corrosion resistance.



  
   Gold


Gold is an extremely robust precious metal which is resistant to both acids and alkalis. Although one of the most expensive metals, its properties make it an indispensable precious metal for electronics and many other applications. This plating offers exceptional electric properties and is widely used in the radio frequency range in particular.






   Silver

In addition to being an exceptional contact material, this shiny precious metal is also used for many other applications.










   Nickel

Nickel has good mechanical and corrosion-resistance properties. Nickel is a contact allergen. Sucoplate® is a good alternative..
