Rhodium Plating

Mitsuya has provided advanced engineering solution service for various industrial rhodium platings.
We provide rhodium plating for wear resistant and high abrasion/corrosion resistant plating deposit.
Rhodium was discovered in platinum ore by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803.
It is still produced as an impurity from platinum ore.

The electrical resistance of rhodium is the lowest in the platinum metal group (Pt, Pd. Ru, Rh, Ir).
The hardness of rhodium plating is about Hv800 ~ 1000 as a hard deposit.
Rhodium plating is used for the electrical contacts which are demanded to have strong wear resistance and high surface hardness. We have many years of experience in developing plating for sliding contacts.
