I am in need of a black conductive plating to use on a aluminum part I am designing. Any ideas?

Hello Mr West,
There are quite a few alternatives in Zinc and Zinc Alloy plating such as zinc iron, zinc cobalt and zinc nickel plating that can give a pleasing black and conductive finish. Each offers different levels of corrosion protection, ductility, etc. Choose any one that works for you.
