Silver plating

Karas has supplied silver plating to the electro mechanical industry for over 40 years and have now developed one of the best facilities in the UK. We have invested in the latest process monitoring and control technology.

We have responded to the market demand for high quality silver plating based on a much faster turn round time than currently available. Our advanced process control measures allow us to maintain excellent consistency of all our silver plated finishes. The plant is specifically designed to “get it right first time” with vastly reduced lead times.

Our large capacity allows us to speed up turn round and lower our plating costs. We operate a very accurate pricing model to ensure that our quotes are consistently competitive.

Silver has excellent electrical and heat conductivity therefore making it highly suitable as an electrical conductor in a wide range of devices ranging from domestic appliances to large scale power transmission.

Conductors are made of a more economical metal (copper/aluminium etc) and then silver plated in order to perform the same function for a fraction of the price. Karas supply silver plating to all sectors of industry including automotive, rail, power generation, power transmission, domestic and industrial appliances.
