on Copper Alloys
and its alloys brass and bronze are used for on
electronic components and RJ45 connector shielding.
Copper has excellent electrical characteristics
and thermal conductivity. It is also a relatively
soft metal which is easily formed. Copper metal
when corroded will form a patina or a green/blue
oxide on the surface.
on copper and copper alloys is used on RJ connectors
. This is the same similar sequence to plating
on steel. Soak clean, followed by an electro-clean,
an acid pickle, and a nickel strike. After the
strike is applied, virtually any type of plating
can follow. For decorative exterior applications,
the strike is followed by a layer of semi-bright
nickel, high sulfur nickel, bright nickel, micro-porous
nickel, and chromium.
plating is the final finish on RJ connector shielding.
Nickel plated improves solder ability and corrosion
