Temperature limit for cadmium plated aluminum parts?
May 6, 2020
Q. We make aluminum parts and must put ink stamp part number on them. At what temperature will the cadmium plating start to break down? I had found on youtube the highest would be 225 °F for no more than an hour. In the test of parts anything higher also discolors the plating. Is this best procedure?
