Innovative Black Zinc Nickel Finish is a RoHS-compliant, cost-effective and sustainable plating alternative to Cadmium. It provides long-lasting corrosion resistance to exposed connector surfaces used on commercial aircraft and military planes, transportation vehicles and marine transports. Black Zinc Nickel Plating offers the same level of harsh environment protection, temperature ranges and electrical performance as Cadmium finishes, but without the toxicity and negative environmental impact.
