With the highest known electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals silver is commonly used in fabricating printed electrical circuits and for electronic conductors. It is also alloyed with such elements as nickel or palladium for use in electrical contacts.
TPG have a number of Silver solutions with different properties and can apply the correct deposit to your product using a variety of different plating methods. TPG can also selectivily plate silver which offers the advantage of reducing material consumption / cost whilst maintaining functionality and performance.
