Benefit

Cadmium plating provides good protection against rust and corrosion in salt atmospheres and at low thickness, enhanced when it is sealed. It is resistant to mold and bacteria growth, with low electrical resistance and exceptional conductivity. It has favorable compatibility with aluminum to avoid galvanic corrosion.  It has natural lubricity (low-friction) properties.
