Wire and wire-mesh plating
In modern cars, high-quality electronics provide safety, convenience and improved performance. Wires often play an essential role in the contacting of electronic components.
Depending on the application, copper wire, bronze wire, brass wire, nickel wire, steel wire, copper clad steel wire, CCS stainless steel wire and wire made of various special alloys and compound materials. In order to meet the special requirements in terms of manufacture and durability, these wires are almost always tin-plated, nickel-plated, copper-plated, silver-plated, gold-plated or coated with gold and palladium. For applications in the high-temperature range, we have developed tarnish protection / discolouration protection for surfaces made of copper, silver and tin. The wires are used as endless wires or as directed rods and must be well solderable and weldable.
For use in plug-in connectors, the tin of the tinned wires is often fuzed to achieve the special properties like an increase in tin hardness and reduction of tin abrasion.
