Highly electrically conductive surface

for advanced and reliable

Silvertech® C – Silver -Carbon plating process.

  • Co-deposits 1-2 % w/w carbon
  • Reduces the friction through a self lubricating effect
  • Improves the wear resistance significantly
  • Deposits a matt Ag-C layer
  • Perfectly suited for connectors with high wear resistance requirements such as EV-battery chargers and power switches for improved life time

  • Low coefficient of friction (0.2-0.5)
  • Hardness 60-90 HV25
  • Low wear off
  • Stable cyanide based formulation for rack and barrel applications

What inspires us

Why we developed Silvertech® C

Your challenge

You need a highly conductive surface that is able to withstand thousands and thousands of mating cycles. A deposit that offers the same advantages as pure silver deposits.

Our solution

Silvertech® C is a self-lubricating deposit through co-deposition of carbon that reduces the coefficient of friction while keeping conductivity high. The improved wear-off enables a longer lifetime than conventional or even hard silver deposits.
